Where to find information on Rangeland Careers, Education and Online Courses?

Prospective students interested in Rangeland Ecology and Management throughout North America can locate expanded choices in curriculum, outdoor research projects and employment prospects at http://rangelandswest.org/careersandeducation/.  The new site features thumbnail sketches of current students who share their classroom and outdoor research experiences in various parts of the Western U.S. Profiles include rangeland students from Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Oregon.

Career specialists are needed to help manage the grassland, shrubland, woodland and desert landscapes that comprise immense rangeland ecosystems, most west of the Mississippi River.  Current and projected job demand is strong. Specialties in rangeland ecology include soil science, plant life, wildlife species and livestock and watershed/land use policies. Management needs span invasive plant control, endangered species surveys and planning for sustainable livestock operations on both private and public lands. Other applications using range education include prairie land reclamation and restoration, vegetation management and state and federal land management research in fire and range ecology.

Need on-line courses to re-tool for a career in Rangeland Management?

Visit http://rangelandswest.org/coursecatalog/ for a searchable database on on-line and hybrid courses that can bring your credentials up to speed.
The new websites were funded from a U.S. Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture grant titled "Repositioning Rangeland Education for a Changing World."   Contact Susan Edinger Marshall at sem11@humboldt.edu to obtain free bookmarks and postcards that point to the careers and education website.
