Rinker Rock Creek Ranch

Rinker Rock Creek Ranch is a unique research, education and outreach facility that offers a hands-on approach to rangeland management and conservation. The working ranch doubles as a living laboratory where science-based practices for land managers are developed.

The University of Idaho delivers programming at Rinker Rock Creek Ranch to the central Idaho community on rangeland, plants, wildlife, stream restoration and cattle management.

The multi-use ranch relies on an advisory committee to help guide management and research priorities. Learn more about this committee and Rinker Rock Creek Ranch.
