WHAT ARE GRAZING COORDINATORS?

Grazing coordinators are the community face of carbon projects. As the eyes and ears of the project, the grazing coordinators act as liaisons to community members to address questions and comments as the project develops. They are the conduit by which community members learn about project specifics and developments, and they help share the overall vision and long-term goals.

The coordinators have extensive knowledge of grazing practices and boundaries and are able to work directly with different community members, build trust and relationships, and generate excitement for a project requiring extensive community participation.​ 

Continually traveling to different group ranches, grazing coordinators are tasked with the ability to

  • educate community leaders about carbon projects,

  • discuss the benefits of planned rotational grazing in terms of generating increased capacity to manage degraded rangelands,

  • explain expected financial benefits from carbon revenues.
