Sandra K. Wyman, of Prineville, received the Outstanding Achievement Award for Stewardship at the Society for Range Management’s (SRM) 67th Annual Meeting held in Orlando, Fla., Feb. 8–13, 2014.

The Outstanding Achievement Award is presented by the Society for Range Management for outstanding achievement to members and other qualified individuals and groups working with rangelands.

Wyman’s work with the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) National Riparian Service Team constitutes a dream job for many people. She travels the western United States with a strong message and with the technical skills to mediate riparian area conflicts and disputes.

Her message is that with proper management, one can enjoy the benefits and values germane to riparian areas while at the same time protecting and enhancing the environment.

Wyman calls it like she sees it. She is quick to point out how livestock can be used as a tool for the betterment of riparian areas, and she is equally quick to point out that in certain instances, circumstances, and locations, livestock are inappropriate.

This courage and honesty has earned Wyman the reputation of being balanced, fair, and even-handed. Even in situations where tempers are short and voices are tending to be loud, everyone quiets and listens when Sandy speaks. At the end of the day, most recognize that by working together with science-based approaches, we can all receive the benefits of a sustainable resource.
