Description: In 2000, a collaborative range-monitoring program, "Reading the Range," was established with the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension in Gila County, the Gila County Cattle Growers, and the Tonto National Forest with the assistance of the US Department of Agriculture Renewable Resources Extension Act grant program. Funding for Reading the Range has continued with the assistance of the Gila County Board of Supervisors, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and the Tonto Natural Resources Conservation District. This monitoring program uses standardized monitoring techniques to assess rangelands and the information is used to assist in management decisions. The Dutchwoman Allotment was selected as one of 4 ranches in Gila County to participate in the monitoring program. Located on the allotment is a 100-acre isolated landform supporting relict vegetation, Dutchwoman Butte (DWB). Chas Erickson and Mick Holder, permittees of the Dutchwoman Allotment, suggested that one of the key areas selected for the allotment should be located on DWB (4,844 feet) and be paired with a grazed companion site (4,214 feet) immediately across the canyon. Over geologic time, it is assumed that DWB separated from the companion site across the canyon.
