NRCS Update-New Employee

New Employee-Caleb Gray


My name is Caleb Gray and I am the new Range Conservationist in the NRCS Buffalo Field Office. I graduated from the University of Wyoming in 2018 with a Bachelor’s degree in Rangeland Ecology and Watershed Management and minors in Soil Science and Restoration and Reclamation Ecology. I have prior experience with the NRCS through UW and the Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit (CESU) collecting vegetation and soil data to be compiled for ecological site descriptions. Working at UW this past year before starting with the NRCS, I was given the  responsibility of overseeing a graduate student’s project from collecting and entering data to planning visits to sites on private land and helping implement prescribed burns. The purpose of the project was to
determine the best season to use prescribed fire as a means to control cheatgrass in sagebrush while keeping sagebrush mortality low.

As I join the NRCS team I look forward to meeting and helping the farmers and ranchers of  Johnson County to the best of my abilities.
