The Rangeland Wildlife Working Group (RWWG), which was established in March of 2013, is currently looking for new members. The subunits goals include supporting efforts to manage rangelands for wildlife and livestock sustainable use. The working group provides the opportunity for TWS members with similar interests to share knowledge, network, and work towards a common objective.
