LandSmart Grazing Program for Community Resilience

It’s that time of year again! Local Resource Conservation Districts (RCDs) in Sonoma County have collaborated for a second year on the LandSmart®Grazing Program, and we are now accepting applications.

LandSmart®Grazing is a targeted grazing program designed to support interested neighbors or community groups to utilize grazing as a way of reducing fuel load and making their communities safer in the face of wildfires. In addition to reducing fire risks, this carbon friendly method of vegetation management, and community-supported targeted grazing, can improve biodiversity. This project also aims to serve previously burned properties in order to remove invasive weeds and reduce fuel load in preparation for future, post-fire recovery activities.
