Short Film Explores How Well-Stewarded Rangeland Restores Ecosystems and Communities
California Rangeland Trust has released a short film, “From the Ground Up: Healing Our Planet, Healing Ourselves,” that explores how stewarded rangelands restore ecosystems and communities. The seven-minute film features a rancher conservationist who sponsors a PTSD recovery program for veterans on his land, as well as a rancher who recently conserved her family ranch. The film highlights a UC Berkeley scientist whose new study demonstrates the return on investment of protecting ranchland. In addition, Michael Delbar, CEO of the Rangeland Trust, brings home this timely message by sharing what he learned following a devastating wildfire on his family’s land in 2018.
