October 12th Program – “Flights on the Wild Side – The Life & Times of a Wildlife Biologist/Pilot in Alaska”
Join Sacajawea Audubon for our October program, “Flights on the Wild Side - The Life and Times of a Wildlife Biologist/Pilot in Alaska”, presented by SAS Board member, Mike Vivion. Mike will discuss the areas where he worked and flew, as well as some of the changes that took place during his 34 year career with the Fish & Wildlife Refuge Division.
Mike Vivion is a retired Wildlife Biologist/Airplane Pilot who worked on several National Wildlife Refuges over the course of his career. Twenty nine years of that career were spent in Alaska, where he was stationed on the Izembek, Kodiak and Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuges. Aerial census and research projects took him to all the other refuges in Alaska. He retired from the FWS in 2005 and taught at the University of Minnesota, Crookston for seven years. He and his wife Gina, a retired elementary school teacher, moved to Bozeman in 2013 and are happily retired.
