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 wildlife watersheds, and related resources including forestry, recreation, wildlife management, soil science, botany and zoology. The curriculum is designed so that students can transfer to four-year institutions and prepare for careers in natural resource management as Range Conservationists, Soil Conservationists, and Range or Forest Hydrologists.
Students must complete all program requirements, including approved electives, with a grade of “C” or better.
