Dedicated to the enhancement of grasslands, the Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition is comprised of ranchers and private landowners all focused on creating public awareness and improvement of the grazing lands in Nebraska. The organization’s top focus is to provide voluntary technical assistance and educational opportunities on grazing land management. Healthy Nebraska grazing lands translate directly into forage for livestock, habitat for wildlife, economic benefits for landowners and rural communities, and clean water for much of the Great Plains.
The NGLC is a non-profit organization funded solely by grant money. Objectives of the volunteer board are to strengthen partnerships, promote volunteer assistance and participation, respect private property rights, and encourage diversification to achieve and promote education. The organization co-sponsors numerous statewide grazing conferences, workshops, tours and seminars to pursue common interests with other grazing groups.
NGLC is the state entity of the national Grazing Land Conservation Initiative — which is supported by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service to enhance privately owned grazing lands in the nation.
