Range Classes

Becoming a skilled rangeland manager starts with a solid understanding of ecology. Those who manage, conserve and restore natural landscapes must understand how soil characteristics, succession, grazing, fire and climate change affect plant communities. Ecology is the engine that rangeland managers harness to accomplish management goals such as creating sustainable livestock enterprises, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat and wild open spaces.
