Program description

Rangeland Ecology and Watershed Management

Rangeland occupies 47% of the Earth's land area. The 50 million acres of rangeland in Wyoming provide diverse opportunities for the multiple uses of livestock and wildlife grazing, recreation, water production and natural beauty. Students are taught to understand and manage complex rangeland ecosystems.

The rangeland ecology and watershed management curriculum is designed for students choosing to study ecology, utilization, and management of rangelands and wildland watersheds and related resources of forestry, recreation, wildlife management, soil science, botany, and zoology. Degrees include Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy.
