New Forest Supervisor Arrives on the Eldorado National Forest June 22

Placerville, CA..The Eldorado National Forest welcomes back Jeff Marsolais, who will begin serving as the Eldorado’s new forest supervisor on June 22. For the past 5 years, Jeff has been the forest supervisor on the neighboring Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit (LTBMU), where he has served in several positions since 2010. Jeff worked on the Eldorado National Forest early in his career and is excited to return.





“While I was assigned to the Lake Tahoe Basin, we expanded collaboration with communities and partners around the lake through large scale, cross-boundary partnerships like the Lake Tahoe West Landscape Restoration Project and State Route 89 Recreation Corridor Plan,” Marsolais reflected. “I feel lucky to have worked with so many dedicated stakeholders, environmental leaders, public agencies, and amazing employees.”

During his tenure at LTBMU, Jeff also helped establish the Blue Waters Exchange, which brought together students from two USDA Forest Service outreach programs-- the Generation Green youth conservation corps in California, and Kupu, a youth conservation program in the Hawaiian Islands. The opportunity to learn about different ecosystems and cultures broadened students’ understanding of the ecological threats in both states and allowed them to develop their environmental leadership skills.

“Inspiring the next generation to sustain our environment is something I want to do a lot more of,” Jeff said.

Regarding his new position, he said, “I’m looking forward to new challenges on the Eldorado where natural resources shaped the course of history during the gold rush, and continue to have a vital role socially and economically. The timber, water, recreation and special uses on the Eldorado National Forest provide so many benefits to so many people. The forest is incredibly diverse, and rich in multi-cultural heritage.”

Jeff is taking the helm from Acting Forest Supervisor Liz Berger, who has been leading the forest since Laurence Crabtree retired in early January. Jeff is arriving after a recent assignment as Acting National Director of Recreation, Heritage and Volunteer Resources for the Washington Office.

“As our shared stewardship strategy continues to evolve in California, we need innovative leaders like Jeff to help forge news ways of accomplishing our conservation mission,” said Regional Forester Randy Moore. “This means working across boundaries with many different organizations, and sometimes making difficult decisions. Balancing diverse interests and creating resilient ecosystems is a big job on all of our national forests.”

Prior to working on the Lake Tahoe Basin, Jeff worked on seven other national forests in California and Nevada and also worked for the Bureau Land Management. He has a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Natural Resources and Recreation Planning and a Master’s of Science in Natural Resources from Humboldt State University. Jeff, along with wife Jennifer and daughter Emily, have lived in El Dorado County for nearly 20 years.

While the a hole forest service lazy butts sit in Half Assed Pines you drive up 4 and all you see is barricades, work that needs to be done, ie. fallen trees, damaged signs, campgrounds that look fit to invite the homeless, and welding way too much power! Open up Sierra Club or we will do it for you! You have always loved the control over the public, and being a former Forrest Circus employee, I know exactly what is going on! The Circus needs to get off their asses or turn the projects over to people that can get things done! People behind computers don’t get things done, their lazy, and justify their jobs with this report, that report, put a paint brush, chainsaw, crowbar into your hands and get something done!

    Ditto! Yep! My late folks (who retired and lived in Dorrington) would be turning in their graves if they knew what was going on!

        Welcome! I can remember back in the mid-eighties when we would go to the office there to purchase cord tags-only $5.00 back then. Then we would go up to the different "landings" where there were something like 8 to 10 foot long "scraps" of leftover Doug fir, cedar, or pine and were allowed to cut it up for fireplace size. My friend and I would take turns with delivery-one time down to his old house in San Andreas and then to Mom's Dorrington and vice versa. I used to do this quite a few times on my days off to make sure Mom was taken care of with firewood even for a couple of years after my dad passed away in the winter of 1985. So as you can see I took good care of Mom every chance I get. And don't "KNOCK" ME for what I do or comment-it ain't working and I am going to write on these sites as long as I live and when I want to! Good day!
