Across the West — and across America — we rely on landowners like DeWitt to help conserve the rangelands that support wildlife, agriculture, and our rural way of life. “If we can find the right solutions here, then we’ll provide better habitat for sage grouse, for mule deer, and for the domestic livestock that graze here, too,” says Morris.
