Dear Justin,

CLM Internship Blog - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 10:37am
What a wonderful summer! The CLM interns were successful in range monitoring, seed collections, and Powder River Basin Restoration (PRBR) journeys.  We had so many adventures at work and outside of work. Our extracurricular activities ranged from visiting Sturgis, South Dakota, to Teton National Park, Wyoming.  Aside from adventuring, we’ve eaten plenty of delicious Mexican and Chinese food-yummm. Now… you are venturing forward to Denver, Colorado, a back-packing trip in the Amazon O_O, then further pursuing your career in botany and wildlife. I can easily say that you will be missed in Buffalo, Wyoming. Your intelligence of plants and wildlife is non-comparable to those around us.  You memorized all USDA plant codes, Latin names, common names, and medicinal uses…among other descriptors.  You do not need a dichotomous key, you already are an encyclopedia! I will miss the Chris Durham notes, “Please report to Chris “The Totes” Durham or Charlotte Darling to report in to say that you are doing fine” that you leave sticker-ed on my monitor.  I will miss when you call my cube and you’re only one cube away. I’ll miss the parallel parking of your office chair. Certainly will remember your hypothetical scenarios and stories with no climax, that are pleasant and funny.  You certainly have a way of making people smile : )  )

Till next time,         BYE JUSTIN : )

Thank you…for all that you do to make people smile (always), for sharing your ideas and opinions.  Thank you for coming out in the field with me on the PRBR site visits.  Aside from your help at work; thanks for the root beer floats, the pineapple, the rocks, sharing your knowledge and stories, traveling, entertaining, and have I mentioned already-JUST BEING YOU! Thanks again, Heather

Maple / Lori Nichols.
