This program contains provides information on a variety of issues related to the stewardship of rangeland resources in Arizona. Rangelands are a kind of land! They include some forests and woodlands and other vegetation not usually associated with rangelands. But primarily, rangelands are grasslands, shrublands (including deserts) and savannahs (grasslands with scattered trees and shrubs). Rangelands provide many ecosystem services including water, wildlife habitat, livestock forage, recreation, open space, and conservation of natural areas.
