Rotational grazing and restoration.
O’Rourke, the Nebraska 2018 Leopold Conservation Award winner. Jim is a rangeland scientist and will be discussing rotational grazing for species selection and restoration.
Jim and Lora O’Rourke have roots in education and the land.
Their careers involve passing their knowledge of natural resources on to others. They bring that passion to management of their ranch in northwestern Nebraska.
Just the second family to own the land (homesteaded in the 1860s) when Jim O’Rourke’s parents bought the ranch south of Chadron in 1950. They quickly erected a sign that reads “O’Rourke RuJoDen Ranch Wildlife Habitat.” It still stands today, as does the family’s commitment to the soil, water and wildlife habitat.
