Western Colorado Community College (WCCC), a division of Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colo., is looking to introduce a new agriculture and natural resource management program in 2015.

The proposed introductory course, “Rangeland Ecology and Management” is being considered for the spring 2015 semester, subject to public interest. This introductory course to Range Management course is tentatively scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4-5:15 p.m.

The class is being designed for all interested parties, both traditional and nontraditional students, who have an interest in rangeland ecosystems, natural resource management and agriculture and a desire and interest in learning more about range management opportunities.

The accredited course will be based on researched-based best management practices. Anyone with an interest or questions are encouraged to contact Dr. Benjamin Keefer, program director of agricultural programs at WCCC, as soon as possible.

He can be reached via phone at (970) 255-2754 or via email at keefer@coloradomesa.edu.
