A Rancher’s Perspective

How Science Helps Those Who Make a Living Off the Land


The Reynolds Creek Critical Zone Observatory is a collaboration between scientists and local landowners. The landowners allow scientists to access their land and conduct research. In turn, the scientists present any relevant results from their research to the landowners. In the video below, Jerry Hoagland, a multi-generational local rancher, shares why he is excited about the science being conducted at Reynolds Creek and how he believes the science will help him as a rancher.
