Rangeland Watershed Initiative
About 50% of future viable habitat for birds and other wildlife in California will be on private lands. Private lands often have the best soils, available water, and the best growing seasons, along with a history of management and stewardship. Point Blue's Rangeland Watershed Initiative embraces the huge potential for enhancing conservation on food-producing lands in California.
As part of this initiative, we have a team of partner biologists who work hand-in-hand with Natural Resource Conservation Service conservationists and ranchers to facilitate the implementation of practices that benefit soil, water, air, plants and animals. Over the next five years, we intend to support ranchers in the enhancement of carbon, water, and wildlife on California’s grazing lands.
We're also participating in the California Rangeland Conservation Coalition.
