Grazing on Public Lands

The Black Hills are known for its pine forests; but a significant portion is made up of grassy meadows. The Sierra Club has studied livestock forage use on the Northern Hills Ranger District of the Black Hills National Forest for two years. Although our scientific evidence demonstrates unequivocally that overgrazing is widespread, the Forest Service is unwilling to accept our conclusions.  Robel Pole–Black Hills Botanist-Ecologist Workshop  is a presentation about overgrazing made by Tom Juntti to the Black Hills Group.  For more information, contact Tom Juntti at tjuntti@rushmore.com.
