Saskatchewan Grassland & Riparian Health Assessment Field Books

Rangeland Health Assessment Field Workbook - Native Grassland and Forest
Rangeland is land supporting indigenous or introduced vegetation that is either grazed or has the potential to be grazed and is managed as a natural ecosystem, including grassland, grazeable forestland, shrubland, pastureland and riparian areas. This workbook contains sections on native grassland and forest range health assessment methodology. It is intended as a tool for livestock producers, resource managers, agency staff, energy companies, protected area managers and anyone with an interest in the conservation and maintenance of rangeland plant communities to assess rangeland health and use rangeland in a sustainable manner.

Riparian Health Assessment Field Workbook - Lakes, Slough & Wetlands and Streams & Small Rivers
Healthy, functional riparian areas provide an array of goods and services for landowners and society as a whole. This workbook contains a methodology for assessing the health of lotic riparian areas (i.e. riparian areas adjacent to flowing water). It was written for those people who can most effectively influence riparian areas with their management - landowners, livestock producers, farmers, agency staff and others who use and value these green zones.

Hard copies of the three field books are available by contacting the SK PCAP Office at (306) 352-0472 or pcap@sasktel.net.
