Western Society of Weed Science’s Rita Beard Endowment Foundation

The Western Society of Weed Science has created, with an endowment by Rita Beard’s family, the Rita Beard Endowment Foundation. Rita Beard was a long-time member of the Society for Rangeland Management (SRM) and helped lead the effort to coordinate the joint SRM and Weed Science Society (WSSA) meeting in 2010. The WSWS endowment’s purpose is to support students and early career invasive species managers with educational opportunities including registration and travel to professional meetings.
