November 2, 2018 (SRM) – The Society for Range Management will host its 72nd Annual Meeting, Sunday, February 10 through Thursday, February 14, 2019 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Each year, the Society’s annual conference brings together the leaders in range management and natural resources. Attendance at each conference includes members from academia, agency professionals, land stewards, producers, and students representing universities and high schools from across the country.
This year’s conference’s theme, “Gateway to the Prairie” will serve to showcase the myriad of agricultural sectors and land management services specific to Minnesota and the surrounding prairie region. The meeting will kick off with an exciting plenary session, highlighted by Clay Jenkinson, the principal consultant of the Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University and for the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library Foundation, and an award winning historical performer and voice of Thomas Jefferson on the weekly radio program “The Jefferson Hour”. Other presenters include Stanley Temple, the Beers-Bascom Professor Emeritus in Conservation in the Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology and the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Dr. Craig Allen, leader of the U.S. Geological Survey-Nebraska Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Unit. Additional information on the plenary and invited speakers can be found on our website: http://annualmeeting.rangelands.org/plenary/.
This year’s conference will also serve as host to a full agenda of symposia, forums, and workshops with topics ranging from NEPA training for undergrads, restoration ecology, new geospatial technologies for monitoring rangelands, adaptive management, producers’ forum, and more.
