Grassland Resilience Working Group

MSU Grassland Resilience Working Group

The MSU Grassland Resilience Working Group acts as a hub for network building and knowledge exchange among diverse disciplines and off-campus constituencies. Our community of stakeholders includes anyone with an interest in the resilience of Montana’s rural range and grassland landscapes—including sagebrush steppe and mixed-grass prairie plant communities and the variety of introduced plant communities among them, such as cultivated crops—and the diverse social and economic systems they support. Our long-term goal is to coordinate and design integrated, interdisciplinary research and outreach programs that support long-lasting social-ecological system resilience.

Our key strategies include:

  •  A monthly seminar to share relevant research and policy observations
  •  An annual field trip-based workshop
  • Coordinated scholarship and outreach
