Appointing A Panel On Certification


The State Attorney General rendered an opinion in 1990 that “forest” and “wildland” are synonyms, therefore, rangeland management was legally considered forestry, requiring supervision of an RPF.

In response the California Section, Society for Range Management, appointed a Panel on Certification to develop certification criteria and procedures, and to certify rangeland managers.

California Section member C. Rex Cleary (BLM) served as President of SRM.
