Ranchers, landowners, range managers and others are invited to participate in a June 23 range-monitoring workshop near Lander, WY. Attendees will learn range-monitoring techniques; how to identify grasses, forbs and shrubs; and tour riparian and upland sites in the Bureau of Land Management’s Atlantic City Common Allotment.

"We’ll be teaching range-monitoring methods that are simple and easy to learn yet are still scientifically valid and approved by federal land management agencies,” says Barton Stam, University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension Service (UW CES) educator.

Participants should meet at the Atlantic City Mercantile in Atlantic City south of Lander at 10 a.m., bringing their own lunch and drinking water. The workshop is free. For more info, contact Stam at 307-864-3421.
