Loretta Metz, Webmaster
Lori is now on the mainland, in Temple, TX. She’s the USDA-NRCS Rangeland Management Specialist for the Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) on grazing lands in NRCS’s Resource Assessment Division. From 2006 through early 2012, she was the State Grazing Land Management Specialist with the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service in the Pacific Islands Area. She has a BS in Rangeland Management and Soil Science from the University of Arizona.
She has worked with the USDA-NRCS since 1987, seeking to improve grazing land conservation in Arizona, Colorado, California, Montana and the Pacific Islands.
Lori feels privileged to work with the Hawaii GLCI, ranchers throughout the islands, and all the partners concerned with improving the health, sustainability and economic viability of our grazing lands.
Even though she’s now in Texas, her heart is still in Hawaii and she continues to support the grazing industry as the Hawaii GLCI webmaster and technical advisor, and she maintains her membership in the Hawaii Cattlemen’s Council.
