Trail Boss Award

The Trail Boss Award is the highest award bestowed by the International Mountain Section.  The Trail Boss Award is intended to recognize individual IMS members who have demonstrated significant contributions in the science or art of rangeland management.  One award will normally be given each year at the SRM-IMS Fall Meeting.  The award will recognize an Alberta SRM-IMS member when the meeting is in Alberta and a Montana SRM-IMS member when the meeting is in Montana.

The following criteria will guide nominators for the Trail Boss Award:

  • Nominees must hold membership in the International Mountain Section of the Society for Range Management. 
  • Nominees must have made significant contributions to the furtherance of rangeland management. 
  • The Trailboss Award may not be given in any one year if recommended as such by the Awards Committee. 
  • The Award would generally be presented to any one individual once during their lifetime and can be given posthumously.
