Jornada Experimental Range

Rangeland Research Programs

Our mission is to increase sustainability and resilience of multiple land uses in rangelands through collaborative research on ecosystem change, innovative livestock production systems, ecological restoration, and climate adaptation alongside national and global research on land health monitoring and decision support tools.

We co-create knowledge with agricultural producers, land management agencies, and non-governmental organizations. Our products support land management of hundreds of millions of acres of U.S. rangelands and support farmers and foresters of the Southwest. Collaborations with universities and international organizations augment and magnify the impact of our research to global rangelands.

The Jornada is located on the ancestral lands of indigenous peoples of the Southwest. We seek to promote understanding of the history, experience, and place-based knowledge of their original inhabitants.
