Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative Welcomes New Team Lead

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) High Desert District welcomes Michele Windsor as the new Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative (WLCI) Coordination Team Lead.

Windsor assumes the leadership of the WLCI Team from Renee Dana, who retired after more than 35 years of service to the BLM. Dana praises Windsor, “Michele brings a wealth of experience and capabilities to the team. She will definitely be a positive influence on WLCI.”

Windsor also welcomes the challenge, “I’m really excited! The job definitely plays to my personal strengths of working with partners and seeing on-the-ground progress without some of the constrictions of set boundaries.”

Windsor most recently worked as a senior wildlife biologist for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. She has also worked at the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, U.S. Forest Service, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, and a private consulting firm. 

Windsor is a Minnesota native who holds a bachelor’s degree in wildlife biology from the University of Montana and a master’s degree in wildlife management from Montana State University.

She is an avid outdoor enthusiast who is active in The Wildlife Society, and enjoys hunting, fishing, camping, canoeing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, bicycling, as well as cooking and knitting. Windsor and her husband Brent are also the proud owners of a hobby farm.  

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
