California grasslands are among the most endangered ecosystems in the United States. Birds and insects that rely on grasslands are among the fastest declining species in North America.

    Land is your life support system - sound planning means everything. Build drought and fire resilience, biodiversity, and soil carbon. Increase effective rainfall!

     Learn how to develop and implement a successful grazing plan at this two-day workshop. This powerful step-by-step grazing planning process developed by ALLAN SAVORY is good for your grass, livestock, wildlife, soil, monitoring, and especially your wallet.                                               

    • Morning sessions focus on new principles, simple tools & the planning chart; afternoons are spent outside on a working ranch.
    • Learn from people who use this grazing planning process to build soil grassland health, animal performance & profit.
    • Learn how to accelerate improvements in annual grassland, native perennial grassland, oak woodland, irrigated pasture, wetlands and stream-side habitats using livestock.
    • Learn how to stop over-grazing plants and over-resting land. Learn the power of high animal impact to create the change you want.
    • We will learn by doing. Wear sturdy walking shoes and bring your rain gear!
