    Description

    California’s hardwood rangelands cover 10 million acres, providing wildlife habitat, esthetics, recreation, and watershed protection. About 85 percent of the area is privately owned, and private ranchers supply most of these open space values. The important public values from these privately-owned wildlands has created pressure for the state to regulate oak harvest and conversion. However, current policy calls for a program of intensive educational outreach. This program, started in 1986, is known as the Integrated Hardwood Range Management Program (IHRMP), and is a partnership between the University of California, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, and California Department of Fish and Game. The effectiveness of research and education as a tool for conservation of important environmental resources is discussed on the basis of the 9-year history of the IHRMP.
