This is an opportunity to learn about targeted grazing as part of a vegetation management and fuels reduction strategy.
Want to learn more about how to increase the use of targeted grazing? Join this field workshop on Thursday, March 16th from 8:30am – 4:00pm to learn from team members from East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) and Star Creek Land Stewards. Participants will improve their understanding of why people might choose targeted grazing as part of a vegetation management and fuels reduction strategy, and how that gets implemented.
Fuels Reduction Coordinator at East Bay Regional Park District, Steve Keller, will explain what is required to manage a grazing contract on a day-to-day basis. Rangeland Specialist at EBRPD, Allison Rofe, will discuss the goals of the East Bay Regional Park’s livestock grazing program including treatment, design, permitting pathway, and methodology of partnerships.  Star Creek Land Stewards’, Bianca Soares, will highlight targeted grazers’ ability to adapt methods based on project goals and differences in specie’s grazing styles.
