The Range Club is a student section of the Society for Range Management (SRM), a professional international society, and many of the club members are also active members in the Society. Our biggest event of the year is the SRM Annual Meeting, where students attend symposia and can participate in one or more of the following events:
Undergraduate Range Management Exam (URME)
Plant Identification Contest
University Student Chapter Display Contest
Undergraduate Paper Session
Undergraduate Public Speaking Contest
However, SRM membership is not required to join the club, as we are involved in a variety of activities and always open to new ideas. Workshops, seminars, and field days provide professional development, while BBQs, Dutch-oven cookouts, highway cleanups, and the annual Barn Dance provide many opportunities for club members to spend time with their peers and connect with professors and other professionals. Members have the opportunity to fly into Taylor Ranch in the midst of the Frank Church Wilderness in the fall to help winterize the ranch. We also participate in a number of other fundraising activities to help club members pay for travel to SRM functions.
