A west-wide team of working lands stakeholders received a 2020 National Conservation Innovation Grant, which has led to the development of an Interim Practice Standard. The CoW-CIG team, including ranchers from multiple states in the West who are utilizing these practices, will share ideas for transitioning from innovative strategies to broadly applicable practices through the NRCS Conservation Delivery framework.

Discussion will include approaches to habitat and ranch evaluation for conservation planning, along with approaches to site-specific implementation using a set of guiding principles for each practice.
