Feb. 15, 2015 – Mike Chaveas (’98 B.S. wildlife science) is the new forest supervisor for the Hoosier National Forest in Indiana. Chaveas previously worked in Oregon as a district ranger on the Mount Hood National Forest as well as on the Coconino National Forest and for the U.S. Forest Service’s International Programs office in Washington, D.C., coordinating technical assistance in countries throughout Africa. He also worked as a wildlife biologist in Morocco’s Eastern High Atlas National Park while serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer.

“I am very excited to get back to Indiana and get to know the forest and local communities,” Chaveas said. “I look forward to continually learning how to balance all of the different needs and pressures that are placed upon our public lands, while ensuring that they continue to provide benefits for generations to come.”
