We’ve all heard “Home on the Range,” the unofficial anthem of the American West, but what exactly is “the range?”
The range or rangelands are the unfarmed, wide open spaces that account for more than 40 percent of the earth’s land—and 70 percent of Wyoming’s. These sparsely treed ecosystems provide habitat for wildlife, food for livestock, natural beauty for our souls along with oil, natural gas, timber—and jobs.
To understand and sustainability manage these complex ecosystems, which run the gamut from wetlands to deserts, is at the heart of what you’ll learn as a rangeland ecology and watershed management major.
