The Plenary Session will kick off the meeting with noted speakers Dr. Reed Noss, author of Forgotten Grasslands of the South and Professor of Biology at University of Central Florida, discussing the history of grasslands in the south and orienting our largely western-based membership to the regional rangelands, Dr. Thad Box, Former Dean of Utah State University’s College of Natural Resources and regular contributor to Rangelands and Utah Public Radio, discussing the history of drought and how his experiences have changed the way he thinks and how drought has shaped the Society, and Dr. Donald Wilhite, Professor of Applied Climate Science at University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Founding Director of the National Drought Mitigation Center, discussing the way forward in how we deal with and manage for drought on our rangelands. Throughout the meeting they will have a large diversity of technical sessions, workshops and symposia covering a range of topics from wildlife to fire ecology.
