Ryan Williamson, who previously served as the Region 6 upland bird biologist out of his home office in Outlook, was promoted to an area wildlife biologist position that primarily covers the state’s far northeastern corner. He replaces Drew Henry, who had earlier moved to another area wildlife biologist position in Glasgow.
Heather Harris, who most recently worked as a water-rights specialist with the Montana Department of Natural Resources & Conservation in Glasgow, has been named as FWP’s Region 6 non-game biologist. She replaces Ryan Rauscher, who moved to another FWP wildlife biologist position in Conrad.
Kelly Compton, formerly of Havre’s Duchsher Insurance Agency, is now the office manager at FWP’s Havre Area Resource Office. She replaces Keri Van Swearingen-Lipp, who moved to another job in Havre.
Finally, Tim Potter Jr. of Glasgow has been appointed as the Region 6 Hunting Access Enhancement Program Coordinator. Potter, who previously worked as a long-time technician in the program, replaces Michael “Mikey” Nye, who now works as a hunter education specialist for the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.
