In the Northern Great Basin of Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, and Utah, this change is driven by introduced invasive annual grasses and the catastrophic wildfires they induce.

The diversity of voices in SRM, scientists, consultants, land stewards, agency professionals, is unique and it keeps me current, engaged and always motivated to learn more.”

I spent too many years in the beef industry thinking that I didn’t have time to commit to SRM. It’s only now that I realize the time and money that I wasted by not being a part of this organization sooner.
