Dutchwoman Butte (DWB) is a 100-acre isolated landform that supports a relict vegetation. This rangeland was being monitored by the so called "Reading the Range" which is a collaborative range-monitoring program. This program assesses rangelands with the use of standardized monitoring techniques and assists in management decisions. This DWB has been compared to a grazed area located 25 miles away. Other topics being discussed include: the description and history of Dutchwoman Butte as well as for the nearby grazed whiskey tank companion site; range monitoring and soil data collection; species composition; and the management implications.
