Though EcoResults! is a startup enterprise, the people responsible for it have served as pioneers in creating collaborative, results-based solutions to Western environmental challenges.
Dan Dagget, environmentalist and author, literally wrote the book on the subject of applying collaborative solutions to Western ecosystems, Dagget’s book, Beyond The Rangeland Conflict—Toward a West That Works, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and has been described as one of the most important books on the contemporary West. In 1992 Dagget was honored as one of the top one hundred grass roots environmental activists in America by the Sierra Club for its centennial celebration. He has given more than a hundred talks around the West on the outstanding results that environmentalists and ranchers achieve when they apply a results-based approach and work together.
