On May 9, 2018, Jim Peña announced his retirement as Regional Forester for Region 6, effective July 3 of this year. Region 6 is a linchpin of federal timber supply and has tremendous potential for active management. AFRC staff will work with the Forest Service to ensure that important Region initiatives continue uninterrupted. AFRC will also closely monitor the selection process for the next Regional Forester.
We thank Jim for his years of service and wish him and his family well.
