Our Conservation Work

Conservation

Cattle were removed from the Research Ranch more than 30 years ago, and efforts began to help the natural processes rehabilitate an ecosystem that was damaged by overgrazing and drought. Erosion control, eradication of non-native invasive species, replanting of native grasses, and reestablishment of fire are all ongoing processes at the Research Ranch.
