Water & Wildlife Management on Working Lands Field Day at Berlier Ranch

July 22, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us for the final installment of the Water & Wildlife Management on Working Lands Field Day Series at Berlier Ranch!

We’ll hear from Rancher Jim Berlier about his grazing management and local wildlife, and from ranch partners about prescribed burning, windmills (construction, land restoration, impacts on birds, etc.), local wildlife (antelopes, birds), the Audubon Conservation Ranching Program, and more.

Learn more about Jim Berlier and his “Stewardship with Vision” here.

The field day and lunch are completely free. The event is targeted towards producers, agency reps, and anyone interested in managing a ranch for water and wildlife.
