One of the greatest resources Youth Range Workshop has to offer is the team of people who dedicate their time annually to make this workshop a success.  Feel free to contact us and we can put you in touch with an expert to address your question, a speaker to talk to your group, or someone to discuss ideas!

Check out these resources to learn more about rangeland plants, videos of land stewardship, and even a place to order plant mounts to study!  There are videos of the 4-H and FFA Range Evaluation Contests and several videos about ranches with outstanding rangeland stewardship.   We included a list of Facebook pages with loads of rangeland information……many of those have a presence on Instagram as well.  Come along and interact with the range community in Texas on social media!  Hope you find these helpful!
