The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests have a new acting deputy forest supervisor on board for the next few months. Bernie Bornong comes to the forests from the Bighorn National Forest in Wyoming.
Bornong was the resources staff officer there, working with the timber, aquatics, wildlife, range and fire programs.
Bornong joins the GMUG to fill the deputy forest supervisor role vacated by Sherry Hazelhurst. Hazelhurst assumed the primary leadership role as acting forest supervisor when Charlie Richmond departed for a position in the Forest Service national headquarters.
According to Bornong, "I am really excited to be here and to learn more about the GMUG."blog comments powered by Disqus
