Isaac Kolousek never paid much attention to the grasses his family's cattle were grazing when he checked cow/calf pairs with his dad, Scott. That is, until he began attending South Dakota Section of the Society for Range Management Rangeland and Soils Days two summers ago. "It definitely changed my perspective. Now, I notice that this grass is different from that grass and this grass grows in May and this one starts growing in July," explains the 17-year-old Wessington Springs FFA member. Introducing youth to rangeland and soils, while enhancing their knowledge of these precious natural resources found throughout our state, is the focus of the annual event held this year in Redfield, June 26-27, 2018 and co-hosted by SDSU Extension, Spink county Conservation District and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). More than 100 South Dakota 4-H and FFA youth, ages 8 to 18 attended the two-day educational and judging event. "We want to make South Dakota's youth aware of nature that is all around them. Too often, when youth learn about nature on TV or other media, it's focused on jungles and forests. We have a beautiful ecosystem and biome right here in South Dakota - the prairie is all around us," explained David Ollila, SDSU Extension Sheep Field Specialist, who is one of the event's organizers. Ollila has seen the first-hand benefits of Rangeland and Soils Days for more than 30 years - first as an agriculture education instructor/FFA advisor and today, as one of the many professionals who help lead the hands-on training. "Youth are developing skills today that they will use in their future. Any successful rancher or farmer has to understand the foundational principles of how soils work and livestock producers need to understand how rangeland works with soils. Even those who will not be involved in agriculture, will have opportunities for employment," Ollila explained. "And, for all the rest, who don't use this information in their future careers, I always told my students, 'you may not go into these areas, but those of us on the prairie need you to speak on our behalf.'" One of Ollila's former students, Dawn Gardner can relate. She said it is because of Rangeland Days and 4-H and FFA rangeland judging that she chose the career that she did. "Because of Rangeland Days I realized I really enjoyed plants and working with them, so I chose a degree that focused on plants," explains the South Dakota State University graduate who received a bachelor's degree in biology with an emphasis in botany and a master's in wildlife and fisheries sciences. Today, Gardner works as a senior vegetation ecologist for the environmental consulting firm, BKS Environmental Associates, Inc. "I am identifying plants, many of which I learned at Rangeland Days, on a daily basis when we are in the field doing reclamation monitoring and baseline assessments for energy companies," she explained about her morethan-a-decade-career assessing reclamation of land to make it suitable for livestock grazing and wildlife habitat. The prairie is the classroom The curriculum utilized during Rangeland and Soils Days is age-appropriate and hands-on. "People of all ages are drawn to nature and this hands-on curriculum. We're out in the prairie using all our senses to explore soil and identify range plants - touch, taste, smell and feel. Seriously, we all get our hands dirty as we identify rangeland plants or rub damp soil through our fingers to determine its texture." Youth learned about soil health, how to identify soils as well as how soil type, slope and other factors impact engineering and construction from Lance Howe, Project Leader, Soil Scientist with NRCS. Howe added the soils component to Rangeland Days 14 years ago because, as someone who spends his workweek focused on conducting and evaluating soil surveys for the federal government, he believes all South Dakotans need a basic understanding of soil health. "Our soils are priceless. If we don't protect our soils, and understand how to manage our soils - we don't want to see what happened in the 30s happen again," Howe explained.
