Grasslands of the mountain west are among the most ecologically essential, and threatened landscapes in the region. Grassland birds, for example, are among the fastest declining of native species, having lost 53% of their population since the 1970s. Mid-elevation meadows, savannas, chaparral and forests in southwestern Oregon and northwest California — a biodiversity hotspot known as the Klamath-Siskiyou region — combine immense carbon capture potential, diverse habitats, and an integral place in the regional ranching economy. But conservation and working lands interests often are considered to conflict, particularly when cattle are involved. Three practitioners from conservation easement lands in Southern Oregon and Northern California will discuss integrating conservation-oriented grazing, riparian and weed management approaches that sustainably reconcile ranching with climate resilience, watershed restoration and protection of sensitive flora and fauna, mutually benefiting migratory fish and wildlife corridors while conducting economically viable, sustainable agriculture on conserved working lands.
