Project to Reform Public Land Grazing in Northern California monitors in Klamath National Forest

What To Do When You See Grazing-Caused Damage to Your National Forests or Other Public Lands

Poorly managed grazing on public or on private land typically results in damage to water quality, riparian areas, wetlands and wildlife habitat. In California National Forests livestock grazing has been shown to result in violation of water quality standards for fecal coliform and nutrients in headwater streams that should be providing our highest quality water. Livestock waste is deposited into waterbodies or into positions where runoff, snowmelt or high water will deliver the waste to streams.
