Grazing and Conservation Part II
December 10, 2015
You’re invited to the first Open Space Council sequel.
Everyone loves a good sequel (right?) and so we’re doing it again.
You’re invited to our Rainy Season Gathering on January 28, 2016 for Grazing and Conservation Part II: Cooperating with Ranchers. We’re doing this in partnership with UC Cooperative Extension, Elkhorn Slough Coastal Training Program, California Rangeland Conservation Coalition, Central Coast Rangeland Coalition, and California Rangeland Trust. This Gathering will take the conversation further and continue to explore this complex and important topic.
We will hear perspectives on the benefits and challenges of working with ranchers for grazing to benefit conservation on public and/or private lands in the Bay Area. The speakers are:
- Robert Doyle, General Manager, East Bay Regional Park District
- Justin Fields, 5th generation rancher, Santa Clara County
- Nancy Schaefer, Program Manager, California Rangeland Trust
The Gathering will be held January 28, 2016 from 9:30am-1pm at the David Brower Center in downtown Berkeley. Program starts at 10am but no beverages are permitted in the theater. Join us at 9:30 for coffee and tea, and lunch will be served at 12pm.
If history is any prediction of the future, this Gathering will fill up. The good news is that we have a lot more seating capacity.
