Reducing Conflict with Grizzly Bears, Wolves and Elk

A Western Landowners’ Guide

How can we as landowners share and manage a wild, working landscape that sustains both people and wildlife? In this new guide, western landowners offer a variety of solutions based on their own experience.

The knowledge and insight offered in this guide have not been lightly earned. Each of the contributors brings a wealth of real-world experience in ranching and wildlife management. Some ride daily among grizzlies. Others spend nights on the range among wolves. Out of necessity and interest, they are innovators and close observers of wildlife, livestock and people. They know first-hand the difference between what looks good on paper and what works on the ground.

You can see the full list of contributors HERE. You can also take a look at an excerpt from the guide, including a letter from WLA’s executive director, Lesli Allison, the table of contents and the full introduction.

Thank You to our Sponsors!

Western Landowners Alliance is indebted to the National Geographic Society for making it possible for us to dive into this project, and to the George B. Storer Foundation, Partners for Fish & Wildlife, the Blackfoot Challenge and Heart of the Rockies for providing critical support during the production phase of the guide.

Rangeland monitoring – why to monitor and resources to get you started

The value of monitoring land attributes are generally known among land stewards. The greatest value is in gaining an understanding of the soils, plants and animals you manage, documenting that information and then using that information to guide future decisions.

We’re in this together

At Western Landowners Alliance, we respect land as a living community that includes both people and wildlife. Today, the movement for racial justice underscores more than ever that we are one people on a finite planet. Our care for one another and our care for the land go hand in hand. The impulses that lead people to abuse others are the same impulses that lead to abuse of land and natural resources. Yet we also have the capacity to create systems, cultures and relationships that curtail injustice, generate healing and bring forward the better aspects of our nature. There has never been a more important time to do so.

Join WLA to stay up to date on the most important news and policy for land stewards.

Become a member for free today and we will send you the news and policy developments critical to the economic and ecological health of working lands.

WLA works on behalf of landowners and practitioners throughout the West. We will never share your contact information with anyone.
