Rangeland is a fundamental, renewable natural resource. Throughout the western U.S., it offers a wide-range of opportunities for the multiple uses of livestock and wildlife grazing, recreation, water production and natural beauty. The rangeland ecology and watershed management curriculum is designed for students wishing to study ecology, utilization and management of rangelands and wildland watersheds, and related resources including forestry, recreation, wildlife management, soil science, botany and zoology.
