Key Areas and Critical Areas. In many allotments, riparian areas are “key areas” for management, and their condition may indicate whether grazing management is proper for the entire allotment. In other cases, riparian areas may be “critical areas” for management of site-specific concerns and objectives. grazing-riparian interactions was combined with our expe- rience in various areas within the Intermountain Region to form a basis to guide future riparian grazing management. These riparian grazing management recommendations have been developed as an aid in reducing nonpoint source pollution in western streams and as suggestions that could.
