Dr. Stephanie Larson, UC Cooperative Extension Director, was awarded the California Society for Range Management, Ranger Manager of the Year, 2016. Stephanie received this award for her years of research and extension work; conducting diverse program that focuses on animal husbandry, rangeland ecosystem services and development of niche markets for local livestock producers. She helped local rangeland owners develop water quality plans and comply with TMDL regulations. She initiated a “Notice of Intent” system for Tomales Bay watershed land owners that documents water quality and best management practices. This system was been adopted by the Regional Water Quality Control Board and later extended to Napa and Sonoma Creek Watersheds. With nearly 1 million acres of rangeland in Sonoma and Marin Counties, she works with rangeland owners and managers to develop strong stewardship principals and best management practices. Stephanie assesses ecosystem service management and is currently exploring payments for services, such as carbon sequestration, water capture and biodiversity. During her career she has conducted 100s of local education meetings on livestock production, animal I.D., bio-security, wool marketing, livestock judging, predator control including non-lethal methods, parasite control, range weed management, riparian management, water quality, electric fencing, ranch and grazing planning, estate planning, soil health, vegetation monitoring, grass-fed and organic certification, and grazing for endangered species. Stephanie teaches Range Management at Santa Rosa Junior College; served as a Board Member, then President of the Cal-Pac Section and as a Board of Director on the parent Society, 2010-2013.
