Learn About the ‘Ecological Impact of Livestock Grazing on Public Lands’

February 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Monday, February 5 from 7-8pm. Online.

George Wuerthner is an ecologist and long-time grazing activist. He has published 38 books, many of which address environmental issues, including Welfare Ranching: The Subsidized Destruction of the American West. George will discuss the ecological impact of livestock grazing on public lands, as well as the economic costs. Livestock grazing is the most common commercial use of this country’s public lands, causing significant damage to ecosystems, especially watersheds. It also leads to severe consequences for native species, both flora and fauna. George has been a member of the Sierra Club for 35 years, and currently serves on the Sierra Club’s national Grazing Committee.
