LAKE TAHOE — The U.S. Forest Service recently announced that Jeff Marsolais was selected as the new forest supervisor for the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit.
Marsolais served as deputy forest supervisor for LTBMU the past three years, according to USFS. In 2014, he served as special assistant to the regional forester, providing strategic guidance and direction on hiring efforts for the Pacific Southwest Region.
Marsolais has worked for the Forest Service since the mid-1990s and served on seven different National Forests in the Pacific Southwest and Intermountain regions before arriving at Tahoe. He worked for the Bureau of Land Management prior to that.
He replaces Nancy Gibson, who retired Jan. 1.
"I understand the responsibility involved in managing such a complex and high-profile unit, and I look forward to meeting that challenge with the help of my team and our outstanding partners," Marsolais said in a statement.
Marsolais holds a bachelor's degree in Natural Resources and Recreation Planning and a master's degree in Natural Resources from Humboldt State University.
