About R. Patrick Bixler

Patrick recieved his PhD from the Department of Sociology, CSU, working with Dr. Pete Taylor. Through a fellowship partnership with the Blackfoot Challenge, a rancher-led collaborative initiative in Montana, Patrick collaboratively explored the problem of transferability and scaling up of the Blackfoot Challenge experience. Specifically, he asked: How does a community-based stewardship organization balance the desire to be place-based with the responsibilities of sharing the collaborative conservation message?
