Starting Dec. 1, the Natural Resource Conservation Service in Grant will have a new biologist.
Aaron Sisson is a graduate of Brigham Young University with a BS in Wildlife and Wildlands Conservation.
Since graduating last year, he has been working as a wildlife technician on the National Bison Range Complex, which includes Ninepipes and Pablo Wildlife Refuges, and several other waterfowl production areas in the Flathead Valley in Montana.
In that capacity, his responsibilities included conducting, waterfowl pair and brood counts, bird surveys, Parker’s range surveys, and grassland pre- and post-burn monitoring.
Sisson also cooperated with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, and the Lake County Weed while working on the National Bison range.
While at BYU, he worked as a lab assistant studying Rio Grande wild turkeys and as a research assistant studying pygmy rabbits.
Other work experience includes work as a range technician with the USFS in the Uinta National Forest.
