December 8 Webinar: Reducing Woody Encroachment to Conserve Rangeland Production in the Great Plains
On December 8 at 1:00 p.m. eastern, Dr. Dirac Twidwell of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will present on the rapid adoption of new strategies to reduce woody encroachment and conserve rangeland production in the Great Plains.
This virtual event will be hosted on Microsoft Teams. No registration is required.
Woody encroachment and associated large-scale collapse of rangeland in the Great Plains may contribute to increased wildfire events, declines in livestock production, heightened risks to water resources, and reduced biodiversity. On December 8 at 1:00 p.m. eastern, Dr. Dirac Twidwell of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will present on the rapid adoption of new strategies to reduce woody encroachment on rangelands, driven by the emergence of new science documenting how woody plant expansion is causing nationwide declines in rangeland production.
This presentation will focus on new large-scale conservation efforts on working lands and will detail use of the Rangeland Analysis Platform, a tool that supports rangeland monitoring, decision-making, and more effective management. By effectively reducing woody encroachment, land managers across the Great Plains can restore and maintain healthy grasslands ecosystems and improve forage production.
