Arizona Cooperative Rangeland Monitoring Program started as a collaboration between the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension and the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) in Mohave and Cochise counties. Extension personnel are located in BLM field or district offices and work with both the agency and ranchers to coordinate rangeland monitoring and educational activities in their respective areas. The program has recently expanded state-wide to include personnel located in the Arizona Strip, Kingman, Phoenix, Yuma, Tucson, and Safford. This group conducted a range monitoring workshop for the High School Youth Forum at the 2013 national SRM meetings in Oklahoma City.
