Regional Forester Faye Krueger will retire from her post at the head of the U.S. Forest Service’s Region 1 headquarters in Missoula at the end of January.
“I’ve been eligible to retire for a while, and we decided it was time to reconnect with family and our grandkids,” Krueger said Friday. “I’m looking forward to that.”
Krueger, 59, took the top job on the five-state Region 1 almost three years ago. She joined the Forest Service as a seasonal worker in 1980.
