A University of Wyoming Extension educator serving the Big Horn Basin and Wind River Reservation has received the Achievement Award from the National Association of County Agricultural Agents.

Rangeland resources educator Mae Smith, based in Greybull, received the award during the association’s annual meeting July 12-16 in Sioux Falls, S.D.

Smith joined UW Extension in 2011, and said her favorite teaching opportunities are filming the “Exploring the Nature of Wyoming” educational videos, identifying plants in the field and organizing the Annie’s Project series for women in agriculture. She serves Big Horn, Fremont, Hot Springs, Park and Washakie counties; and the Wind River Reservation.

Smith also coordinates the national award-winning Barnyards and Backyards magazine. The magazine addresses resource management issues faced by Wyoming small-acreage owners. Smith has been an active member of the Society for Range Management for 10 years, serving on national committees and planning the Wyoming youth camp.
