Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative Coordinator: The purpose of the NRCS is to assist private landowners in the conservation and wise use of land, water, wildlife and related resources. NRCS recognizes the Colorado Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative Coalition as an entity with a similar mission. NRCS seeks to increase and expand the effectiveness of the Colorado Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative (GLCI) program. Based on past public meetings and input from interested conservation partners and producers, the Colorado GLCI Coalition has established four major priorities in accomplishing the GLCI mission: 1. Establishing local task forces to promote grass-roots conservation partnerships, leadership and outreach. 2. Informing key producer organizations and professional societies of the Colorado GLCI Coalition?s purpose, mission and proposed actions. 3. Educate users of proper management of grazing land resources, with special emphasis on youth and the non-agricultural public. 4. Enhance technical capabilities of grazing land management specialists (range conservationists) at the local level. 5. Support innovative demonstration projects and research on grazing lands.
