TROUT LAKE — Mosé Jones-Yellin has been selected as the incoming Mt. Adams District Ranger.
Jones-Yellin is currently the deputy district ranger on the Sierra National Forest in California, but is no stranger to the Gifford Pinchot, having served as the Cowlitz Valley District Ranger in a temporary detail in 2012.
“This forest has some of the most beautiful and valuable natural resources found anywhere in this country, and it will be a pleasure to join the community and lead these outstanding Forest Service employees,” he said.
Gifford Pinchot National Forest Supervisor Janine Clayton echoed Jones-Yellin’s enthusiasm.
“We are delighted to welcome Mosé to the Gifford Pinchot team and his young family to southwest Washington,” said Clayton. “Mosé’s collaborative land management experience and approach to partnership-building will help foster the wonderful work and relationships ongoing on the Mt. Adams Ranger District.”
Jones-Yellin brings a great breadth of knowledge, land management experience and academic achievement to his new position. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering from Carnegie Mellon as well as a Master’s Degree in Natural Resources and Environment from the University of Michigan. In his role on the Sierra National Forest, Jones-Yellin is responsible not only for the Timber program and Silviculture department, but he represents the High Sierra District on the Forest Budget Team.
