Allotment Monitoring Reports
When Project staff go into the field to monitor public land grazing, we take notes on observations and photographs to document the impacts of grazing and indicators of grazing management. We note positive management indicators as well as negative indicators. When we get back to the office, or after multiple visits to a grazing allotment, we use field notes, observations and photographs to produce illustrated reports presenting what we found.
Each Allotment Monitoring Report also includes recommendations to those responsible for assuring that public land grazing is conducted in accordance with applicable plans, laws, and regulations. Management recommendations are directed to those responsible for on-the-ground grazing management (Forest Service district rangers and BLM area managers) as well as Regional Water Board officials responsible for assuring compliance with the Clean Water Act on public land.
Below is a list of the Grazing Allotments we've monitored on the Klamath, Rogue-Siskiyou, and Shasta National Forests. Some of these reports address impacts on more than one allotment. In those cases, the report is listed under each allotment it addresses.
