SGI Featured Friend: Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust
January 24, 2015
The Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust protects Colorado’s agricultural land, heritage and families for future generations by conserving rural landscapes. Northwest Colorado harbors prime sage grouse country, linking classic sagebrush habitat to rivers, aspen forests, and soaring peaks. Here, ranchers are embracing conservation easements at an unprecedented rate.
Sage Grouse Initiative dollars are infusing critical funds for the Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust to help ranchers protect their lands from development.
The Sage Grouse Initiative is a partnership-based, science-driven effort that uses voluntary incentives to proactively conserve America’s western rangelands, wildlife, and rural way of life. This initiative is part of Working Lands For Wildlife, which is led by USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service.
