|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.
|John Sandford is both the
Weed Coordinator and a Range Conservationist at the Butte Field Office, BLM.
Here he is listening to an Oberea erythrocephala
buzzing with an assist from Todd Breitenfeldt and Marijka Wessner.
|Kirsten Boyle is pursuing a bachelor's degree
in Land Resources and Environmental Sciences, Land Management and Analysis,
from Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. She is working for
the BLM as a SCEP (Student
Career Employment Position) which is an internship program available to high
school, undergraduates, and graduate students.
