Tim Christian and his wife Cozette are packing everything into a camper and heading West. For the past ten years, Tim has coordinated the Kansas Grazing Lands Coalition, a non-profit that helps Kansas ranchers regenerate grazing resources. His efforts in the state have been exceedingly successful, says Kansas Agland. And you can see the difference. Across the state, landowners have installed solar power, implemented rotational grazing systems, and cleared out invasive species.

Much of Tim’s good work was accomplished through cost-share programs and grants. Christian tirelessly researched sources from which to fund Kansas conservation projects. Tim will do his last work for the coalition in med-September, then head off into the sunset.
