Transparent, informed research is at the heart of our mission at the Rangeland Trust. By communicating with our readers, our ranchers, and our supporters the importance of ranching and rangeland, we aspire to change the way California values working landscapes.
In 2020, the California Rangeland Trust partnered with scientists from UC Berkeley to explore the value of ecosystem services provided by 56 conserved ranches and to calculate the return on our environmental investment. In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Lynn Huntsinger to discuss the findings from the Ecosystem Services Res. Dr. Huntsinger is the Russell Rustici Chair, a Professor of Rangeland Ecology and Management at Berkeley’s College of Natural Resources, and one of the lead scientists of the Ecosystem Services Research. She is a champion of rangeland conservation and was awarded the Rangeland Trust’s Conservation Impact Award in 2021 for her significant contributions to advancing rangeland conservation and was recently featured in the Rangeland Trust’s new short film, “From the Ground Up: Healing Our Planet, Healing Ourselves.”
Tune in every month to learn how you can be involved in preserving the future of the Golden State for generations to come.
