Abstract

Over half of Idaho is classified as rangelands with both private and public land management agencies as stewards. Because of this robust ecosystem that surrounds us, there is a need to educate both youth and adults about the opportunities and challenges on rangelands. As this need became known, 4-H partnered with the Idaho Rangeland Resources Commission plus multiple federal and state agencies to start the Idaho 4-H Rangeland Skill-a-thon in 2015. This program allows youth and adults to gain a better understanding of private and public rangelands and have an opportunity to gain hands-on experiences in the field.
