Rumsey Natural Area Rangeland Management Plan


Project Name: Rumsey Natural Area Rangeland Management Plan
Study Area: Rumsey Natural Area
Client: ESRD

Work Completed:

The grazing management plan of the Rumsey Natural Area was updated by TCS in 2008 and 2009. Previous range management plans of this land have also been assessed by TCS. A comprehensive assessment of each ranch within the natural area was conducted using MF5 transects and range health assessments. In addition rare species and invasive species were surveyed across the land. Range management plans were then written for a number of the ranches including updating the recommended stocking rates, mitigating negative impacts on the land base and giving an over all assessment of the quality of management and where it could be improved.
