2018 Texas Youth Range Workshop

Texas Youth Range Workshop

Our flagship educational opportunity!

Youth, age 14-18, are eligible to participate in this week-long, hands-on workshop. Participants are exposed to actual land management practices and decisions through field trips to ranches and a wildlife management area. These field trips bring out facts on goals of land ownership and the responses of vegetation to practices conducted for livestock, wildlife, recreation, and rangeland restoration. All examples will be real-life applications.

The camp is headquartered on the Texas Tech University-Junction campus.

Applications will be accepted until 40 participants have been selected.
