San Juan Ranch Reading the Landscape Workshop
September 6 - September 7Free
With drought upon us again this year, the long-term limitations of some grazing practices and management choices resulting in good productivity despite the weather becomes more evident. Built-in resilience isn’t necessarily found on the ‘best’ land, but is the result of seeing the opportunity in a landscape and working to maximize its short- and long-term potential. Join us for two great days of landscape assessment and monitoring at the San Juan Ranch! This workshop will focus on practical methods to increase your knowledge of your land base in order to choose the best management to meet your production goals.
This workshop is perfect for ranchers, land managers, students, or anyone looking to learn new grazing and land management methods. Students and young professional are highly encouraged to attend. The workshop will take place on two ranches managed by the San Juan Ranch: Thursday we’ll be on leased land along the Rio Grande River near Alamosa, and Friday we’ll visit flood-irrigated and sub-irrigated meadows and uplands near Saguache. Attendees are welcome to camp Wednesday and Thursday night at the ranch and will be responsible for dinners and camping gear. Attendees will need to bring lunch on Thursday, but will be provided lunch on Friday.
Space is limited, so register now!
