R angeland professionals are passionate about rangelands, and they want people in their com- munities to know what rangelands are and the many resources rangelands offer. Teachers are equally passionate about helping their students become good citizens who will make productive contributions to the world in which they live. For many teachers, this endeavor includes helping their students understand the landscapes that sur- round them. There are many opportunities for those who care about rangelands to partner with educators to help students gain appreciation, understanding, and fascination with the wild open spaces we know as rangelands. DOI: 10.2458/azu_rangelands_v34i3_launchbaugh
