SANTA FE, NM — Western Landowners Alliance is pleased to be able to provide $1,500 scholarships to select individuals in need of financial assistance to attend the Western Ranch Management and Ecosystem Stewardship 2019 summer field course being offered by the Department of Forest and Rangeland Stewardship at Colorado State University (CSU).
The course will offer extensive interactions with ranch managers and experts in the many different fields of natural resource management that contemporary ranchers encounter on a day-to-day basis. Students will visit and stay at a variety of working ranches in the Rocky Mountain West and see first-hand how operations are tailored to support ecosystem processes, foster lasting protection of the land, and achieve economic sustainability.
The course will consist of two 10-day field sessions hosted at ten ranches in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico. Together, the ranches represent a variety of ecosystems that characterize the Rocky Mountains. Field visits to each ranch will highlight the unique opportunities and challenges in modern ranch management and land stewardship.
