Want to learn more about how to increase the use of targeted grazing? Join this field workshop on Thursday, March 16th from 8:30am – 4:00pm to learn from team members from East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) and Star Creek Land Stewards. Participants will improve their understanding of why people might choose targeted grazing as part of a vegetation management and fuels reduction strategy, and how that gets implemented.
