BLM, Butte Field Office Employees attend WHE Project Summer Class

John Sandford, Weed Coordinator, and Kirsten Boyle, Student Trainee - Weeds Specialist, attended the WHE Summer Class in August, 2004.  Both are BLM employees from the Butte Field Office which has worked with the Whitehall project for several years.  Over two days they were immersed in biological control - learning more about life cycles, collection, releasing, monitoring, and mapping.  Other interesting topics were building insectories and classroom outreach.
