There have been successful projects in Oregon that enable ranchers to continue to graze livestock and protect our rivers and fish habitat at the same time. Watershed councils, soil and water conservation districts, and ranchers have worked together to fence-off stream and riverbanks, and create off-stream watering for livestock on public lands. The ranchers have stayed in business and in the community, and the vegetation in the riparian area has recovered. The Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, a state agency, funds important projects like this across the state.
