Student Range Plant ID Team, Rangeland Resource Science

Humboldt State University’s Range Plant Identification team placed 1st in the U.S. and 3rd overall in a contest during the Society for Range Management Meetings in Reno, Nevada. Deedee Soto, HSU Botany major with a range minor, placed 5th in the individual category. Coached by lecturer/NRCS Rangeland Specialist Todd Golder, team members include Corina Godoy, Amanda Albright, Deedee Soto, Eric Bo Garcia, Michael Rada, Sarah Nolan, Melissa Chase, Tess Palmer, Sierra Berry, Miles Ritch, SRM President Larry Howery, Thomas Mendoza, Darren Pinnegar, Abigail Price, Don Hijar (Pawnee Buttes Seed, Inc.), and Todd Golder. These students practice plant identification skills in RRS 475 Advanced Study of Range Plants, offered every semester.

The team owes much to HSU’s excellent range and botany courses, including the Agrostology course (BOT 354) offered alternate years.

In addition, Professor Susan Edinger Marshall was interviewed and approved as a candidate for the 2018-2019 ballot for the SRM Board of Directors.
