Grassland and Range

Grasslands and range ecosystems are necessary for the agriculture and tourism sectors of the Chilcotin Mountain area.

With its native grasses and wildflowers, rangeland insures wildlife subsistance and provides a large number of species with a primary food source. It also allows cattle and horse grazing.

These areas need a management plan in order to prevent conflicts between commercial use and wildlife. Protecting these ecosystems from forest encroachment or overuse will ensure the sustainability of the resource.
