The Upper Niobrara White Natural Resources District (UNWNRD) will again partner with Chadron State College (CSC) & C.F. Coffee Family Foundation to hold the 5th Annual Range Day at the Student Center on the CSC Campus on Thursday, January 16th, 2020. 

“The planning committee has pulled together another line up of great speakers on several range related topics and anyone interested in protecting or improving their range health is encouraged to attend” stated Nevin Price, UNWNRD Natural Resources Coordinator.

The Range Day is a one-day, educational event with speakers on everything from prescribed burning and long-range weather forecasts, to range monitoring technology and drones. There will be a free lunch for all those in attendance, provided by the C.F. Coffee Family Foundation and many other local sponsors. UNWNRD was also awarded a Nebraska Environmental Trust Grant to improve this, already successful, event.  

In addition to the educational opportunities provided by the UNWNRD Range Day, there will also be many local vendors in attendance for networking opportunities as well as door prizes and other giveaways. There is no cost to anyone interested in attending but RSVPs are required for the lunch provided.

Please plan to attend the 5th Annual UNWNRD Range Day on January 16th, 2020 beginning at 8:30 a.m. in the Scottsbluff Room of the CSC Student Center.  Please direct any questions to Nevin Price, UNWNRD Resources Coordinator at [email protected] or call 308-432-6190 to RSVP for the free lunch.
