Trail Boss Award – 2007 – Linda Hardesty

Linda is a dedicated range manager who has been extremely successful internationally, nationally, regionally and locally. Her practical, useful research has made dramatic differences in the management and economic practicalities of each site and nation where she has worked. She is a wonderful undergraduate teacher of whom students say, “she cared”!

Linda has earned many awards, but her two favorites (before the TBA) were “Rangeman of the Year” from Idaho SRM and a spontaneous “Awesome Advising” award given by WSU students! Regardless of the award, the rangelands of the world are better because of her. Thank you, Linda!
