The IRRC sponsors Idaho FFA Rangeland Assessment Career Development Events each year. These are opportunities for students to learn about rangeland ecosystems, native and non-native plants, shrubs, forbs and more in the field — skills that will help them prepare for a career in rangeland management. The IRRC’s high school curriculum is available online to help with the background and preparation for this event.
