Range school deadline nears

Ranchers, landowners, and students can learn about creating range wealth through soil health Tuesday through Aug. 22 at the Tallgrass Range School at Elmdale’s Camp Wood YMCA.

The school costs $300 per person, covering materials, on-site lodging, meals, and other related costs.

Instructors will cover soil health, increased water intake, improved organic matter, increased soil biota, and a day on a neighboring ranch.

Those meeting eligibility requirements can also apply for a $150 scholarship from Kansas Grazing Lands Coalition. Agency staffs can also apply, but will only qualify for $100 in scholarships.

“Time is especially important to anyone interested in applying for a scholarship to offset up to half the cost of the school,” said Tim Christian, KGLC state coordinator.

Scholarship forms and more information on the school are available at
