LEADERS. STEWARDS. PRODUCERS. EDUCATORS. 

This is the professional society dedicated to supporting persons who work with rangelands and have a commitment to their sustainable use.  We encompass all perspectives of the rangeland community and those who are passionate about the health and stewardship of rangelands.  We are built on involvement, dedication, and leadership of our members.  SRM is strongest when we have the diversity of thought, activity, and action that comes with a broad and committed membership.  When colleagues like you are with us, we build our strength, not only as a society, but also as a voice in the rangeland community.

 

The Wyoming Section is dedicated to the conservation and sustainable management of rangelands for the benefit of current societies and for future generations. We achieve our mission of a group of well-trained and  highly motivated professionals through the Section's meetings, field days, workshops, and leadership opportunities.
