About the Range Conservation Concentration


The Range Conservation concentration is designed to train students on the science and management of sustainable use of grasslands, shrublands, and forest lands that provide the necessities of life for grazing and browsing animals. This concentration focuses on field-based experiences and providing the basis for understanding how range managers can maintain healthy range ecosystems for their continued use for domestic and wildlife animal production and recreational opportunities. Graduates from this concentration often work for the Natural Resource Conservation Service, the U.S. Forest Service, and Bureau of Land Management because the curriculum meets the Civil Service requirements for their range conservation positions. The range conservation concentration meets the accreditation standards of the Society for Range Management.
