Dr. Angus McIntosh, a private property rights expert, will be conducting a workshop at 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 27, 2016 at the Otero Jr. College Banquet Room in La Junta, CO. Beverly Rave, former Colorado State Land Board Director, will also speak on issues such as the Walk In Legislation, that will potentially impact all State leases.
The workshop is free and is open to all United States ranchers. Increase your knowledge of what your private property rights are on USFS and BLM grazing allotments. Gain a deeper understanding of your property rights on deeded land and how the National Historic Preservation Act and Archaeological Protection Act are subject to those rights. Learn what issues could impact your State Land leases.
