Thesis Abstract

Thesis Research & Resulting Publications

She has worked for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game and the Bureau of Land Management, as well as U.S. Forest Service in Colorado and Utah.

Currently, Robin is a Wildlife Biologist and has been working for the Sawtooth National Recreation Area of the Sawtooth National Forest since 1991.

Robin finds working in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area challenging due to the diverse issues.  Managing lands for multiple uses requires a wide range of knowledge about wildlife, land and water, and conservation priorities.

She was elected to the Board of Directors of the Wood River Land Trust in 2001, and has been Secretary since 2005. Knowledge of species habitat needs and experience with public natural resources management have made her realize that conservation of habitats requires more than just protecting public lands.
