Volunteer of the Month:
Though we've recognized Tom with this honor once before, we wanted to acknowledge him once again, as he's spent the last year working hard as our Forest for Every Classroom & Education Intern. Interns put in a lot of work for fairly small rewards, and Tom has done a fabulous job on a variety of tasks. He's done a lot of behind-the-scenes work with our Forest for Every Classroom fall and winter teacher workshops; developed interpretation for our prairie exhibit; written Field Notes for Montana Public Radio and an article for Montana Naturalist magazine; updated one of our nature education traveling trunks; and, finally, used his incredible artistic skills to create a brand-new exhibit on the Pleistocene, which we'll be installing later this month--be sure to come and check it out! We so appreciate Tom's hard work, quiet enthusiasm, and creative talents, and wish him the best as he graduates from UM this spring!
Thank you, Tom!
