ROGER (Results-Oriented Grazing for Ecological Resilience) is a unique collaborative effort in Nevada’s sagebrush steppe. This rancher-led group is working with federal, state, local, and tribal stakeholders to define new approaches to public lands management that better achieve goals for livestock and landscapes.
Learn how collaboration with ranchers improved productivity, landscape health, and ecological resilience in Nevada.
Take away tools and techniques for managing multi-party issues in your field office.
