Many strategies can enhance resilience to climate change and other future challenges – and these strategies often also provide immediate benefits to farming and ranching operations. This case study series explores strategies that innovative farmers and ranchers in our region are already using, and which may be of interest to others. Each case study and its complementary video centers around the experience of a regional producer, and provide summaries of relevant biophysical, economic, and social science that help inform when and how these strategies might work in other places.
