Drought and Rangelands Webinar - June 7

Event Date & Time

Wednesday, 2017, June 7 - 2:00pm

Drought can affect the productivity and long-term species composition of rangelands in the western United States, as well as habitat quality for wildlife and forage for livestock. Drought is a periodic and sometimes chronic stressor in arid and semi-arid landscapes, creating challenges for public land managers to ensure that rangelands contain functional ecosystems and provide forage and other ecosystem services. 

Please join the USDA Office of Sustainability and Climate to explore current issues related to drought in rangelands; examples of drought- and climate-related impacts; and management options for increasing resilience. A recording of the webinar will be available upon its conclusion at the webinar link shown above.

The webinar takes place at 2 pm EDT.
