About the Prairie Project
Land use and environmental changes are threatening the rangelands of the Great Plains and the associated ecosystem services vital to society. As a collaboration among Texas A&M University, Oklahoma State University, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, The Prairie Project aims to examine how pyric-herbivory and mixed-species grazing can support the sustainability of livestock production and ecosystem services in the Great Plains region.
Education Mentoring Network
We are a community of educators interested in bringing the science of pyric-herbivory and mixed-species grazing to diverse learning experiences for our students.
Our activities include:
- Designing and implementing high-impact learning experiences for our students
- Promoting and assessing student understanding of sustainability of rangelands and ecosystem services
- Conducting collaborative research in the areas of teaching and learning
- $2,000 stipend for each educator
- Travel support for the summer workshop and a professional conference
- $1,000 for supplies associated with classroom or action research projects
- Individual consultations with subject and pedagogical experts
