San Bernardino, Ca, October 12, 2010, 3:00pm – USDA Forest Service Regional Forester Randy Moore announced on October 8th that Jody Noiron is the new Forest Supervisor for the San Bernardino National Forest in southern California. Noiron is currently the Forest Supervisor of the adjacent Angeles National Forest, where she has held that post for ten years. She replaces Jeanne Wade Evans, who left in August to become Deputy Regional Forester for all National Forests in California. “Jody brings a wealth of natural resource experience and strong leadership skills to the new position, having served as the Angeles Forest Supervisor since 2000,” said Moore. “The San Bernardino is one of the most heavily visited and complex national forests in our nation. With Jeanne Wade Evans’ recent move to the Regional office as Deputy Regional Forester, we’re pleased to have another strong Forest Supervisor who brings a wealth of experience in natural resource and land management.” Previously, Noiron has held the position of Deputy Regional Forester for Resources for all National Forests in California, Hawaii and the Pacific Islands as well as Deputy Forest Supervisor for the Plumas National Forest. She began her career in 1983 as an engineer on the Jefferson National Forest in Virginia and has gained experience in a variety of other positions in the agency at both the local and national level.
