UPDATE: The 2020 Rural West Conference has been cancelled. This decision has been made in accordance with the University's suggested guidelines in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Eighth Annual Eccles Family Rural West Conference builds upon earlier conversations of rural economics and land use in the West. From the eastern slopes of the Sierras, the Center's 2020 conference will explore the role of ranching in the American West. Our program will feature two panels exploring the management of wild horses and rangeland fires in Nevada.
