Welcome to the home of past Rangeland Summits. The California Rangeland Conservation Coalition (CRCC) with the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) host the Annual Rangeland Summit in January of each year. Past presentations can be found on this site. Some years we are able to record the presentations, some years it will only be the Power Points. Starting with 2021, we should have all presentations recorded on the Zoom Platform, and will be able to edit and post them on this site.
For more information regarding the CRCC, please see their website : https://carangeland.org and be sure to sign up for the "Rangeland Linkages" to be kept up to date of any activities.
