National forests and national grasslands are managed for all United States citizens. Parts of these forests and grasslands, however, may be leased to individuals and companies. Some individuals and companies lease public land to graze sheep and cattle. The scientists in this study wanted to understand the Forest Service’s position about the land grants. They were also interested in understanding the Hispanic descendants who want to regain their ancestors’ land grants.
