Landowner Guide to Sage-grouse Habitat in Idaho

This guidebook helps land owners and managers recognize characteristics of productive and unfavorable sage-grouse habitat, prompting informed approaches to management and conservation. The focus is on ranching, as opposed to other land use activities, because livestock grazing is the primary land use that occurs in sage-grouse habitat. Download PDF

Teacher Workshops

For over a decade of summers, rangeland professors have been training teachers how to teach their students concepts of rangeland ecology and management. Working under a shared vision of promoting rangeland education in Idaho, we partner with the Idaho Rangeland Resource Commission to provide high quality summer continuing education workshops. Email 4range@uidaho.edu for information on current offerings.

Curriculum Resources for High Schools

Getting science-based information into the hands of educators not only saves them time but it helps us increase public awareness of the many ecosystem benefits rangelands provide to society. Young people connect science, math, critical thinking and communication skills and better understand the wealth of career options in natural resources and land management across the globe. After all—today's youth are tomorrow's leaders.
