Cattle ranching on the Central Coast supports conservation of rangeland ecosystems including habitat for numerous threatened and endangered species. This workshop will consider two challenges facing ranching and its ability to support conservation (1) declining availability of and changing requirements for liability insurance for grazing lessees and (2) lack of ranch worker housing; and will consider the value of rancher-landowner collaboration.
The workshop includes a visit to the Glenwood Preserve where the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County is working with a grazing lessee to conserve habitat for the Ohlone Tiger Beetle and other special-status species, reduce fire fuels, support compatible recreational uses, and meet the operational needs of the rancher.
