About the CCRC

The Central Coast Rangeland Coalition is a group of individuals and organizations that envision vibrant, productive, diverse, and sustainable rangelands and communities on California's Central Coast. Partners include rangeland owners and ranchers, conservation organizations such as The Nature Conservancy and the California Department of Fish and Game, public landowners including East Bay Regional Park District and Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, as well as research and educational organizations such as the University of California Cooperative Extension and Elkhorn Slough's Coastal Training Program.

This website contains reference materials and information about the Central Coast Rangeland Coalition's meetings and the Coalition's rangeland conservation forum.
