Marcel Huijser, Going the Extra Mile

Thanks to Marcel Huijser for going the extra mile – as he also does – preparing for a US Highway 93 excursion.  The following letter was submitted to WTI by Rebecca Lloyd, U.S. Director of Conservation, Science and Action for the YELLOWSTONE TO YUKON CONSERVATION INITIATIVE:
“I just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you what an excellent employee and representative of WTI you have in Dr. Marcel Huijser.  I asked for Marcel’s help in leading a learning field trip for the Board of Directors and Staff of Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative about the highway mitigation structures on US Highway 93 north of Missoula, through the Mission Valley.  Last Friday, Marcel did a superior job guiding us, teaching us, and keeping us safe along this route.  On his own initiative, he invited key partners to assist him from the Confederated Salish Kootenai Tribes, Montana Department of Transportation, and People’s Way Partnership and together they made the field trip one of the best and most informative trips that the Y2Y Board has ever had.  It was clear how much respect all the partners have for Marcel and soon into the trip it was clear why to all the Board and staff of Y2Y.  The Y2Y Board is composed of leaders across the US and Canada. We were already supporters of Western Transportation Institute and now we all have a greater appreciation for the level of research and successful collaboration WTI brings to complex projects thanks to Marcel.”
