JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The Bridger-Teton National Forest in northwest Wyoming has a new supervisor.
Clinton Kyhl is currently a deputy forest supervisor of a national forest in central Washington state.
Kyhl will take over Bridger-Teton on July 28.
From 2007 to 2009, Kyle was the incident commander for the Bark Beetle Incident Management Team in southeastern Wyoming and northern Colorado. He and his team developed management strategies to deal with a large bark beetle infestation across 2.5 million acres of national forest.
He also was the district ranger for the Laramie Ranger District on the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests, located in Laramie.
Kyhl replaces Jacque Buchanan who transferred to the Rocky Mountain Regional Office this past March.
