PAUL SMITHS - A 25-year veteran of the wildlife sciences field will be on campus to share his perspectives and insights about the profession this Friday as part of this fall's Fisheries and Wildlife Seminar Series at Paul Smith's College.
Raymond Rainbolt has a master's degree in wildlife science from Oregon State University and a bachelor's in wildlife management from the University of Minnesota.
He has worked on various projects for both universities, along with federal agencies, private contractors and state governments in various parts of the United States as well as overseas.
For more than 10 years now, Rainbolt has served as the fish and wildlife program manager for the U.S. Army at the Fort Drum Military Installation in northern New York.
On Friday, Nov. 2, Hugh Robinson will be on campus to talk about his work with mountain lions in Montana.
Since 1996, Robinson has been involved in cougar research in British Columbia, Washington, Montana and the mountain national parks of Canada, which has helped shape their wildlife management policies.
Both talks will take place from 10:10 to 11:05 a.m. in the Freer Auditorium.
All Fisheries and Wildlife Seminars are free and open to the public.
For the past six years, Paul Smith's College has hosted a different professional fisheries and wildlife biologist each month as part of the series, which is sponsored by the Fisheries and Wildlife Science program.
