The AMCP is committed to sustainable land practices unique to the prairies – namely grazing and prescribed burns.     The prairies, and native species adapted to the prairies, require these disturbances otherwise plant and animal diversity decreases as woody species encroach the landscape. 

 

The Association of Manitoba Community Pastures is mandated to manage productive, bio-diverse rangelands and promote environmentally responsible land use practices at the community pastures located throughout Manitoba.   Cattle grazing is used as a primary tool to support healthy and diverse landscapes which are representative of natural functional prairie ecosystems.
