Western Education/Extension and Research ActivitY (WERA)

Western Education/Extension and Research Activity (WERA) is under the auspices of The Western Association of Agricultural Experiment Station Directors (WAAESD), a regional association that is comprised of the 13 western states and four Pacific trust territories. WAAESD helps plan and manage multistate research activities. 

In 2008, The Rangelands Partnership became a WERA multi-state project (WERA 1008). It has received approval for continuation in all subsequent review periods; view all WERA proposals.

The WERA formalizes collaboration within The Rangelands Partnership. To become an official member of the Rangelands Partnership, add your name to the WERA application.
