Welcome to the Department of Rangeland, Wildlife and Fisheries Management (RWFM). Our department was established in January 2020 after a restructuring of the former Ecosystem Science and Management (ESSM) and Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences (WFSC) departments.
As a result of the reorganization, the Departments of Ecology and Conservation Biology (ECCB) and RWFM were established. Our department is dedicated to preparing the next generation of natural resource stewards through teaching, research, and engagement.
We are excited for what the future holds and encourage you to explore our website, like us on social media and contact us if you have any questions.
Dr. Cliff Lamb
