About the Rangeland Restoration Academy

The mission of the Rangeland Restoration Academy is to improve rangelands in the Western U.S. and around the world. We accomplish this by demonstrating proven techniques and educating ranchers, state and federal agency personnel, policymakers, the media, and interested citizens about what actually works to restore native biodiversity, soil fertility, tilth and water holding capacity, watershed function, riparian health, and stream flows to the world’s rangelands.

To help carry out our mission, the academy is fortunate to have a distinguished board of directors who each bring unique strengths and expertise in support of our mission.
