Around the Watershed

Conservation "Volunteers"

In the world of conservation, cattle are often left out of the conversation. We want to change that and give these heavyweight contenders their time in the spotlight. When properly managed and cared for, these bovine heroes can be true assets in protecting and stewarding California’s native grasslands.

Their size and diet help us reach our conservation goals in areas where help from goats or sheep just won't do!
