BLM High Desert District Welcomes New Rock Springs Field Manager

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) High Desert District (HDD) is pleased to announce that Kimberlee Foster has joined the Rock Springs Field Office (RSFO) as its new field manager.

HDD Manager Mark Storzer states, “Ms. Foster has been a tremendous asset to the district during her tenure as renewable resource advisor. She has extensive experience in multiple-use resource management programs and we know she will make positive and constructive contributions to the management of public lands in this area.”

Foster began her BLM career as the planning and environmental coordinator specializing in National Environmental Policy Act compliance for the RSFO. She has previously worked with the Department of Defense and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources on a wide variety of environmental issues including air and water permitting, hazardous waste projects, watershed management, land use planning and environmental compliance.

Raised in St. Louis, Mo., Foster is a graduate of the University of Missouri’s College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources with a degree in biochemistry. When not working, Foster enjoys traveling, reading and spending time with family.

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.
