We are the Colorado Chapter of the Society for Range Management. This is the professional society dedicated to supporting persons who work with rangelands and have a commitment to their sustainable use. Rangelands are about 50% of terrestrial lands on earth, and provide ecosystem services and wildlife habitat, protect watershed health, and support livelihoods. The Society for Range Management is dedicated to the conservation and sustainable management of rangelands for the benefit of current societies and for future generations.
