The Grazing Lands Forum (GLF) is a coalition of twenty-nine organizations, Federal agencies, professional societies, and individuals that seeks to promote cooperation to improve stewardship on America's public and private grazing lands and associated water resources. Grazing lands include range, pasture, and forest lands grazed by livestock and wildlife. GLF seeks to improve cooperation by increasing knowledge, understanding, and awareness. The Forum process is the most important of GLF's activities.
The Forum process promotes an ongoing exchange of information and viewpoints about selected grazing issues. Each year the process culminates in a conference designed to foster open discussion among representatives of GLF's diverse membership. The results of these discussions are presented in in-depth reports.
Individuals are welcome to participate in the yearly forum, now held annually in Washington, D.C. on the 30th of November or during the first week of December. The location frequently has been the Hall of States Building (444 North Capitol Street) which is near Union Station. Contact the current GLF secretary to be placed on the mailing list.
