About RangeNet

RangeNet is a network of individuals who are working to improve the ecological conditions of America's public rangelands. On March 13, 2001, became a special project of Western Watersheds Project, Inc. (WWP) which is a non-profit 501(c)(3) membership corporation headquartered in Hailey, Idaho. 

Rangeland condition is the perpetual step-child of environmental organizations and management agencies alike. While no other use impacts as many acres of western public lands as frequently as grazing by domestic livestock, those impacts often go unnoticed by the untrained eye. The damage is often as subtle as it is pervasive and devastating to indigenous organisms, soil properties, and hydrologic functions. Other higher profile items such as forests, riparian, wilderness, and so forth end up dominating environmental and management agendas while range condition seldom shares the spotlight long enough to accomplish needed reforms. RangeNet was founded to mitigate that situation by improving communication and providing a focal point where individuals may work more effectively on rangeland condition issues in support of their existing organizational affiliations.

RangeNet's primary purpose is to facilitate communication among and with rangeland activists.  Free membership is by nomination and invitation.  Any member of RangeNet may nominate individuals they believe should be invited to join by sending an email to  (Hint: If you want to join RangeNet and have not been invited, ask a RangeNet member to nominate you. The nomination of new members is one area where rangeland "activists" have not proven to be particularly active self-starters.)

Nominated individuals who accept the invitation that is then emailed to them are adduced to RangeNet's directory of members, are able to join RangeNet email discussions, and are eligible for other activism support facilitation.
