Wolves and Ranching Free Workshop for Livestock Producers
The return of wolves on working lands is just one of the many expanding challenges ranchers face in today’s world. As such, there exists a greater need for understanding, tangible resources, and support for the stewards of Colorado’s wild-working landscapes.
These workshops are designed to provide insight from first-hand experience, discuss practical solutions and opportunities for support, and have open, respectful, and sincere conversation around the topic of ranching with wolves and other predators.
