Professor Diana Six Receives Missoula Conservation Award

On October 17, 2017, Diana Six was awarded the Arnold Bolle Conservation Preservation Award by the Conservation Round Table of Montana. The award is named after the late Dr. Arnold Bolle whose life demonstrated an unparalleled commitment as a professional and individual to conservation. This award is given to an individual contributing in an exceptional manner to natural resource management or environmental protection.

The nomination recognized Professor Six's research using novel approaches to understanding and managing bark beetles; a tenacious commitment to translating science to the public; and a strong track record in effective mentoring of first generation students and students with backgrounds that have challenged both their entry into college and their success once they got there.

Six is Professor of Forest Entomology/Pathology in the Dept. of Ecosystem & Conservation Sciences in the W.A. Franke College of Forestry & Conservation.
