Abstract: Grasslands are open areas with few trees where grasses or grass-like plants are the dominant vegetation. Grasslands in the province of British Columbia are rare, unique, life-sustaining ecosystems that support a great diversity of plants and animals, provide high quality grazing for livestock, and offer many excellent recreation opportunities for residents and visitors alike. B.C.?s grasslands are used extensively for motorized and non-motorized recreational activities for both commercial and non-commercial purposes. B.C.?s grasslands represent less than one percent of the provincial land base and are one of Canada?s most endangered ecosystems. More than 30% of British Columbia?s threatened or endangered species depend on grasslands for their survival. Stewardship and conservation of grassland ecosystems will depend heavily on our ability to manage human activities appropriately. Well-managed recreation activities can help minimize changes and negative impacts to grasslands and can also help foster an ethic of grassland stewardship. With ever-increasing pressures on a very small land base, managers, decision makers, and industry need to be able to effectively address the threats and deleterious changes to grasslands, including those from recreational activities.
