American Prairie Reserve welcomes several new staff members this year to complement our growth as an organization and in our land holdings. Our upcoming newsletter (don’t forget to sign up to receive them in your inbox!) will introduce you to James Barnett and Lars Anderson, who now live full-time on the Reserve with their families. In addition, we’re excited for you to meet our new Bozeman-based staff, Becky Hurlburt and Rachel Regan.
Becky Hurlburt, Operations and Human Resources Assistant
As the Operations and Human Resources Assistant, Becky is a “Jill-of-all-trades” and serves as a central hub for projects related to technology, logistics, and personnel support. Becky grew up in Billings, Montana, and earned degrees in Business Administration and Spanish from Northwestern College and Montana State University-Billings, respectively. When asked what she is looking forward to about working at APR, Becky said that, in addition to spending time on the prairie, she is excited to learn from our Senior Management Team. In her free time, you can find her climbing and skiing.
Rachel Regan, Development Assistant
Rachel provides much-appreciated support to our fundraising efforts. From coordinating event materials to database management, she will help us reach organizational goals more efficiently than ever before. Rachel is originally from Alabama and brings a love of wildlife and environmental education with her to APR, thanks in part to degrees in Aquaculture (MS) and Biology (BS) and work as an interpretive ranger intern. She can’t wait to try fly fishing on the Missouri River this summer as part of a visit to the Reserve, and both Rachel and her husband Shawn enjoy hiking, snorkeling and birdwatching.
Thank you for your continued support and enabling us to attract and hire new members of the APR team. We are enthusiastic about the future of the Reserve and are grateful to be in a position to not only continue work toward our mission but also to contribute to local economies through employment opportunities.
