BLM Hosts Open House to Welcome New Field Manager
Bob Ross, newly selected field manager for the Bureau of Land Management’s Lander office, invites the community to meet him at an Open House at the Lander Field Office. The Open House will take place on Wednesday, June 14, from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Lander Field Office, 1335 Main Street. Ross assumed leadership of the BLM Lander Field Office at the end of May.
Ross comes to the leadership role at the Lander Field Office after serving as Field Manager in the Newcastle Field Office since September 2004. After graduating from the University of Maryland with a bachelor's degree in geology, Ross worked as a geologist for the U.S. Bureau of Mines in Pittsburgh, Penn. Ross came to Wyoming in 1981 and started his BLM career in Cody as a geologist. He served in positions in Cody and Worland in land use planning, and then served as the assistant field manager for minerals and lands in Worland for three years. Before moving to Newcastle, Ross served for six months as the acting field manager in Worland. Ross, and his wife, Janine, have three sons.
