Miles City Rangeland Specialist Receives National Conservation Award


Kami Kilwine, rangeland management specialist for the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service in Miles City, Mont., was recognized by NRCS as the Early Career Rangeland / Pastureland Conservationist for 2016 during the NRCS Family Meeting held at the Society for Range Management 70th Annual Meeting in St. George, Utah, in early February.


The purpose of the award is to recognize NRCS employees who have exemplified outstanding service to NRCS and their customers through implementation of sound technology transfer on rangeland and pastureland resources. This award is presented as an encouragement for outstanding performance by men and women entering the grazing lands profession. One award is given annually.

Award winners have less than 10 years of Federal service and demonstrate extraordinary potential and promise as a future leader for rangeland or pastureland conservation issues.

After a successful internship, Kilwine began her fulltime career as a rangeland management specialist in Baker, Mont., in 2009. Shortly after that, she was selected as the Sage Grouse Initiative rangeland management specialist in Forsyth. She is currently the NRCS area rangeland management specialist in Miles City.
