The Rangeland Living Laboratory is not a place. It is a web of landscapes and people. It’s a network of partnerships where rangelands are the classroom, and barriers between where science happens and where it is applied, are overcome.
It’s about an urgent need to ensure sustainable human-nature relationships for future generations. It’s about co-production, demonstration, and translation of knowledge through partnerships on public and private working lands.
The Rangeland Living Laboratory functions as a living network of working lands, landowners, educational institutions (K-12 schools to universities), research scientists, community organizations, and other local and regional initiatives.
By providing access to public and private working lands through facilitated partnerships, we connect people, from students to decision-makers, to the source of their sustenance – the natural world, while working to resolve sustainability challenges.
