Forest has new Supervisor


Dennis Jaeger (Jay-GUR), a veteran of both the U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Army, is the new Forest Supervisor for the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests and Thunder Basin National Grassland (MBRTB).

Jaeger was selected for the post earlier this summer by Rocky Mountain Regional Forester Dan Jirón and his first day on the job was Aug. 11. 

No stranger to the area or current issues affecting the Rocky Mountain Region, Jaeger comes to the MBRTB from the Black Hills National Forest where he served as Deputy Forest Supervisor for the past seven years.

He served seven years active duty in the U.S. Army and retired from the South Dakota Army National Guard in 2010 as a Lieutenant Colonel.

“Our public lands are an amazing gift that belong to the American people,” said Jaeger. “As employees of the U.S. Forest Service, we are the current stewards of those lands, which I consider an awesome responsibility and duty.”

Jaeger is the fourth MBRTB Forest Supervisor since the units were administratively combined in the mid-90s, and replaces Phil Cruz who retired in May of this year.
