BLM Rocks Springs Invites Public to Field Manager Installation

The public is invited to attend the installation ceremony for Kimberlee Foster as the Rock Springs Field Manager for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) High Desert District.

The ceremony will take place at 11:00 a.m., Thursday, April 10, at the Rock Springs Field Office, 280 Highway 191 N., Rock Springs, Wyo. BLM Wyoming State Director Don Simpson will administer the Oath of Office.

“The field office has a wide variety of issues and I am looking forward to working through them with the staff and community,” states Foster.

Foster began her BLM career as the planning and environmental coordinator specializing in National Environmental Policy Act compliance for the Rock Springs Field Office. 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. 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.
