3-Part Webinar Series: Accessing Rangeland Knowledge with LandPKS

Online via Zoom

The Land Potential Knowledge System, or LandPKS, supports ranchers, rangeland managers, and other land managers with open-source tools that allow them to easily access knowledge and information, and to collect, share, and interpret their own soil, vegetation cover, and management data. This webinar series targets rangeland managers and others who are interested in learning how to use LandPKS, and in exploring the app’s new Habitat and Soil Health modules in a rangeland management context. 
Each of these three, 45-minute webinars will focus on a different aspect of using LandPKS on rangelands: identifying land potential, monitoring vegetation and understanding habitat, and monitoring soil health. You are welcome to attend one or all of the sessions; however, we recommend that new LandPKS users attend the first session.
