This document gives instructions on how to assess the health of upland and riparian areas.
The overall objectives for range management are:
- to maintain healthy functioning riparian and upland systems
- to restore and maintain desired plant communities through proper management
- to ensure that there will be no net loss of native species
- to allow safe levels of use
The range use plan identifies how range will be managed to achieve goals related to production, biodiversity, and integrated resource management. The initial range use plan and management prescription is developed from an interpretation of baseline information and records of historic use. Follow-up monitoring is required to evaluate the effectiveness of the management prescription and tenure holder compliance.
