Forest names deputy supervisor

GLENWOOD SPRINGS ” Mary Morgan, who has been serving as the recreation and engineering staff officer for the White River National Forest for the past year, will be the new deputy forest supervisor on the White River.

She takes over the position on Sept. 30, replacing Don Carroll, who began work as the deputy bark beetle incident commander last year. He’ll continue work in a regional role, tackling issues related to the mountain pine beetle epidemic.

Morgan, a Glenwood Springs resident, has overseen the forest’s road and facility programs, as well as recreation, heritage and wilderness programs in her present role. Her duties include managing use of the White River’s 12 ski areas, recreation facilities and campgrounds. The White River National Forest surrounds Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley.

Morgan is a native of Seattle and a 16-year veteran with the Forest Service, including stints on the Medicine Bow-Routt forests and with the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit in California. Before joining the agency, she served for eight years as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Marine Corps and eight years as a senior staff engineer and program manager with Lockheed Martin Aerospace Corp. in Denver.
