Program Overview


The Range Program allocates and administers hay cutting and grazing agreements and grazing leases on Crown range across the Province. Program activities focus on ensuring healthy and sustainably managed rangelands which are capable of supporting the interests and activities of clients, stakeholders and partners. Parties with an interest in management of BC rangelands include the ranching industry, guide outfitters, First Nations, Government and Non-Government Agencies, wildlife, recreationalists and the public at large.

Sustainable management is achieved through ecological monitoring activities, controlling the establishment and spread of invasive plant species, advocating sustainable range management practices, developing policy and legislation, assisting in the restoration of degraded rangeland and providing extension services to staff, clients and partners.
