Parks With Grazing

Livestock grazing in the parks generally occurs on a seasonal basis, typically winter through early summer. However, a few parks do have year-long grazing in certain areas.  Additional targeted grazing with goats and sheep occurs in various parks.  The application of targeted grazing is timed to reduce hazardous fire fuels, control invasive plant species and/or improve habitat conditions for plant or wildlife species of concern.  Parks with grazing programs have informational signs posted in kiosks and on gates, explaining our program and providing safety tips. For more information on hiking safely near cattle, see our Safety Tips for Hiking Near Grazing Animals.
