Explanation of the field:
Range and watershed management is the study of the relevant characteristics of a range or watershed aimed at the sustainable development of its plant, soil and water resources and the process of creating and implementing plans, programs, and projects to sustain and enhance range or watershed functions that affect the plant, animal, and human communities within a watershed boundary. Features of a range or watershed that agencies seek to manage include soil erosion, sediment yield, water supply, water quality, drainage, storm water runoff, water rights, flood control and the overall planning and utilization of range lands and watersheds.
