The United States Environmental Protection Agency defines rangeland as "lands on which the native vegetation (climax or natural potential plant community) is predominantly grasses, grass-like plants, forbs, or shrubs suitable for grazing or browsing use." The EPA classifies natural grassland and savannas as rangeland, and in some cases includes .

    Grasses stabilize soils and help provide a substrate for other plants to grow. The dense root structure of grass holds soil in place reducing erosion. This is essential in an area such as Grand Teton National Park with steep-slopes and high levels of precipitation. When you visit, take time to consider the grasses. Festuca idahoensis (Idaho fescue, blue bunchgrass): Despite the name, this native grows in open woods and rocky slopes. Found growing in British Columbia to Alberta, south to Central California and Colorado. A cool season clumping grass that grows to only 14 inches (35 cm) tall. More tolerant to wet winters. Hardy to Zone 5.

Partner: Montana State University, College of Agriculture. In support of Montana Native Plant Society. The purpose of this project is to develop a user-friendly field guide to grasses and grass-like plants in Idaho, specifically geared to those with limited background in botany.

The guide will feature 60 Idaho grasses and grass-like plants, intended for K educators and students, ranchers, land owners, recreationists, and nature enthusiasts, with accompanying K lesson Author: Justin J Trujillo, Eva K Strand (Mentor).

It is not an exhaustive guide to the plants contained herein, nor is it a comprehensive summary of all the grasses and grass-like plants in Utah.

Grass-like plants. Grasses, sedges, and other plants with long, narrow leaves. Key Characteristics Leaves consisting of a narrow blade and a tubular sheath around the stem; small, inconspicuous flowers without obvious sepals and petals Exceptions Some non-grasses have very narrow leaves but produce showy flowers.
