The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Wyoming High Plains District welcomed two new resource advisors to the District this year. They will work out of Casper and support the Casper, Newcastle, and Buffalo Field Offices.

George Soehn is the resource advisor for renewable resources. Soehn has over 18 years of experience as a natural resource specialist and wildlife biologist with the Casper Field Office. Prior to the BLM, he worked with the Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station for the U.S. Forest Service in South Dakota. He is a graduate of Colorado State University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in wildlife biology.

Mike Robinson is the resource advisor for Energy, Minerals, and Lands. Robinson is a graduate of both the University of Wyoming (bachelor's degree) and Western Wyoming Community College (associate degree). Robinson has work experience in Wyoming and Utah and served as a realty specialist for the Rawlins Field Office for over three years. Robinson was formerly a realty specialist for the Price Field Office in Utah where he also has served as a co-leader for the recent resource management plan revision. He is also part of the BLM's Emerging Leaders program and has successfully completed a detail as acting assistant field manager for the Monticello Field Office, Utah.

“We are excited to have George and Mike on the High Plains District Team. They are both excellent communicators and team players with an in-depth understanding of the resources in Wyoming,” commented High Plains District Manager Stephanie Connolly.
