Montana -(Ammoland.com)- Marc Kloker has been appointed as the Region 6 information and education program manager for Montana of Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
He will be based out of Glasgow, and replaces Ron Selden, who passed away unexpectedly in August.
Kloker, 37, a longtime Valley County resident, comes to FWP from the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation, where he worked as a land use specialist in Glasgow.
He graduated from Nashua High School and obtained college degrees in Wildlife Biology from the University of Montana and Secondary Science Education from Dickinson State University. For 10 years, Kloker taught science education in both Nashua and Culbertson. During the summers he was a wild land firefighter and range technician with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at CMR in Fort Peck.
As the new information and education program manager, Kloker will be involved in several areas of public outreach and information, including news release distributions, social media updates, setting up public meetings, and administering the Citizens Advisory Council meetings for Region 6.
“I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to reach out to the public about all the great things that are taking place here,” Kloker said. “We have hardworking wardens, biologists, technicians, office staff and volunteers that help make Region 6 one of the best areas in the state for outdoor recreation.”
Kloker will also be involved in youth and adult education and is the Region 6 contact for the Hunter and Bowhunter Education programs. He is also a volunteer instructor.
Kloker will be engaged with other educational outreach, including working with teachers, helping present kids fishing classes and events, and developing programs for area kids and adults such as bird watching, bat netting, and insect collections.
“I’m particularly excited about the educational aspects of the job,” Kloker said. “Coming from an education background, I’m eager to use my teaching skills to share my love and respect for hunting, fishing, nongame wildlife, and all other types of recreation we have in this region, which I hope can lead to developing positive relationships with the state’s fish, wildlife and parks now and into the future.”
Marc and his wife Joanne have two children, Rowen, 5, and Holden, 1. The family loves the outdoors, and can often be seen canoeing, hunting, fishing, and camping across Montana. If you would like to get in touch with Kloker, please call him at 406- 228-3704, or email to [email protected]
