The National Grazing Lands Coalition (NatGLC) was formerly know as the Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative (GLCI). NatGLC is a nationwide consortium of individuals and organizations working together with NRCS to maintain and improve the management and the health of the nation's grazing lands, mostly private but also public. The coalition is driven by agricultural producer, conservation, and environmental organizations for the benefit of America's grazing lands resource. NatGLC seeks to carry out its activities through local, state and national partnerships. It informs the public of the contributions well-managed grazing lands make to the quality of life of every citizen. NatGLC is founded on the principles of voluntary action by those who own and manage grazing lands, and a respect for private property rights. It emphasizes high quality, voluntary technical assistance, expanded grazing lands research and education, and a more knowledgeable and informed public.
