Zumwalt Cooperation

OPB | Nov. 3, 2011 8:30 p.m.

Despite a century of cattle grazing, Oregon’s Zumwalt Prairie remains healthy. A new study by Oregon State University shows low to moderate levels of grazing does not harm the survival of ground nesting birds. The Nature Conservancy’s Zumwalt Prairie Preserve also allows grazing in a rare partnership of ranchers and conservationists.
