RangeNet 2004
Envisioning Wild Landscapes:
Momentum for Change

November 11-13, 2004
La Posada Hotel
Albuquerque, New Mexico

Grazing by domestic livestock affects more than 260 million acres in the
West, and while it can be more subtle than logging or mining, it is
nevertheless pervasive and often devastating to soil, waterways, and
wildlife.

Become more involved and informed on this vital issue, which many see as
fundamentally incompatible with other uses of publics lands, including
recreation, wildlife habitat, clear water, and scenic values.

Join us to learn more about rangeland issues and to network with those who
are actively working to change both national policies and local decisions by
the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management.

Participate with RangeNet, a network of individuals and organizations
working to improve the ecological conditions of America's public rangelands.

See this year's keynote speaker, U.S. Representative Raul Grijalva (AZ-D),
who, along with Representative Christopher Shays (R-CT), introduced the two
Voluntary Grazing Buyout Acts in Congress. If passed, these bills would
allow grazing allotments to be retired, completely removing all livestock.

For further information, email Billy Stern bstern@fguardians.org
or call: 505 988-9126  ext: 151

Lodging rates at the La Posada will increase after October 8, so make your
reservations early.

Please pass this on to friends who might be interested!
