Bre Owens

WLA Stewardship Coordinator
Breanna Owens lives in Los Molinos, California with her sons Will and Clyde. She runs a small cattle and sheep operation based in Tehama County, California utilizing mostly leased private and public lands. Bre grew up in Northern California on a cow-calf ranch, attended Chico State and Colorado State University—Fort Collins. She is motivated by a love for the agriculture industry…for the people, land and livestock that are a part of it. She is inspired by the current conversations and opportunities in highlighting the linkages between the agriculture and conservation communities. Prior to joining WLA as stewardship coordinator, Bre has been engaged with the Conflict Reduction Consortium, Women in Ranching, and the On Land editorial board. Most recently she worked with the California State University—Chico Center for Regenerative Agriculture and Resilient Systems, along with working with a ranching-conservation collaborative called Working Circle Proactive Stewardship that developed as a result of wolves expanding their range to Northern California. Prior to that she worked with Point Blue Conservation Science as a Senior Range Ecologist and Program Coordinator for the Rangeland Watershed Initiative, a partnership program with NRCS. She has been a mentor through Quivira’s New Agrarian Program and is a California Certified Rangeland Manager. She sits on the Board of Directors for Holistic Management International, serves as the Board President of the California Rangeland Conservation Coalition. She is working with the Jefferson Center for Holistic Management (a Savory Institute hub) as a ranch participant in the Ecological Outcome Verification program.
