Herth takes forest post

Michael Herth has been named resource director for the White River National Forest.

He will work out of the supervisor’s office in Glenwood Springs and be responsible for all resource programs on the White River Forest, including timber, range, water, wildlife and fisheries, according to Martha Ketelle, forest supervisor.

Herth had been assistant forest supervisor for the Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia since 1997. He has also worked on national forests in Minnesota, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and California. He holds a degree in forestry and began his career in the Forest Service with a fire crew in California.

“Mike brings a breadth of experience from many national forests across five regions of the Forest Service,” Ketelle said. “I look forward to working with him on the White River.”
