2017 Society for Range Management Annual Meeting

  • St. George, UT

The theme of this year's SRM conference is Red Rock and Rangelands, and it highlights the
juxtaposition of spectacular geology and diverse rangelands in the region around St. George. The southwest corner of Utah is an ecotone at the convergence of three major rangeland regions: the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin, and Mojave. Range management in this region is especially complex due to the high biophysical variability, high concentration of natural wonders and associated recreation activities, and diverse set of stakeholder groups. We especially welcome proposals that highlight the variety of rangeland environments and habitats, multitude of rangeland land-uses, and diversity of people who manage and depend upon rangelands in the southwestern US.
