Student Chapter




Be part of a recognized student chapter of the Colorado Section of the Society for Range Management!

The Society for Range Management (SRM) is the national scientific and educational organization representing the rangeland management profession in the United States.  Founded in 1948 by Joseph Pechanec (among others), it has over 4,000 members in 48 countries, including many developing nations.

Welcome! We seek to extend student education outside the classroom through experiential learning, networking opportunities with professionals both locally and nationally, and the chance to socialize among peers with a common interest in the study, management, and rational use of rangelands and related ecosystems.

Join our community!

  • Develop an understanding of range ecosystems and the principles applicable for managing resources
  • Get hands-on experience through participating in club-sponsored fieldwork such as plant collection, land restoration and measurement
  • Build networks with experienced professionals from the Colorado Section of the Society for Range Management

2018 Society for Range Management National Convention in Reno, NV

We had 14 range club members attend the Society for Range Management conference in Reno, Nevada this year. At the conference, club members participated in the undergraduate competitions, competing against other university range clubs. Among these competitions included plant identification, rangeland cup, extemporaneous speaking, and the undergraduate range management exam. Club members also promoted the CSU range program at the tradeshow with a booth, complete with informational flyers, free stickers, and t-shirts for sale. We are looking forward to next year’s conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota in January 2019!
