Rangeland health affects us all. Rangelands comprise about 40% of the landmass of the United States and provide valuable grazing lands for livestock and wildlife. They serve as a source of high quality water, clean air, and open spaces and benefit people through recreation, agriculture, and mining. The Rangelands West website was created to share information and tools to care for these extensive and diverse lands.
