Warner Rams Win Awards at Rangeland Management Conference
Warner College’s Rangeland Ecology Conservation Club has a lot to be proud of coming back from the Society for Range Management 70th Annual Meeting this year.
The meeting is an opportunity for professionals and students to gather, learn more about range management, and for the students to put their knowledge and skills to the test against other schools in various competitions.
Prepare your trees for winter
Trees in urban and community settings throughout Colorado are going dormant, and they require care before and during the winter to remain in top health.
Homeowners can take measures now and through spring to help their trees through the oncoming harsh conditions, said Keith Wood, community forestry program manager for the Colorado State Forest Service.
The CSFS offers the following tips to prepare urban trees for winter.
Summertime Standouts: Warner College of Natural Resources
Land conservation takes many forms, and as Warner College rangeland ecology major Jon Byerly is finding out this summer, can be pretty complex.
Byerly is interning this summer with the Colorado Cattleman’s Agricultural Land Trust, a private land conservation nonprofit that works with willing landowners to place conservation easements on their properties.
Conservation easements transfer the development rights from the property owner to a land trust or local government, which holds them, to ensure the land remains open space. This preserves both the land’s agricultural heritage with grazing and cattle operations and protects its ecological and asthenic values.
