The Summit was a Success! Thank you for your attendance and support.
This unique symposium of rangeland stakeholders was held in Sacramento, CA. The Coalition, with the generous support of our Sponsors, hosted a Summit for Coalition Signatories and guests that builds relationships among rangeland stakeholders and facilitates learning from one another. Speakers reflected on the diversity of rangeland interests and topics about collaboration. More than 200 ranchers, agriculture and conservation organizations members and staff, agency staff, academics, students, businesses, and more participated. Rangeland decision-makers who attended the Summit are responsible for 16+Million acres!
