Learn how regular monitoring tracks changes and shows trends so you can determine the impact of your management on the land. When you know what’s happening on your land, you can make better management decisions. Your monitoring data documents the health of your land and tracks changes over time.

In this workshop you’ll get hands-on ecological land monitoring experience. Use the knowledge you gain to start or improve your monitoring program on your own land.

If you do not know how your current management is affecting the ecosystem processes on your land (water cycle, mineral cycle, energy flow, community dynamics), this workshop is for you!

We will practice monitoring on irrigated and non-irrigated grazing land.

The workshop site, the Lazy R Ranch, has been practicing Holistic Management for over 20 years.
