Clinton Kyhl, currently deputy forest supervisor of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest in central Washington state, will be the new supervisor of the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Kyhl is no stranger to Wyoming.  From 2007 to 2009, he served as the Incident Commander for the Bark Beetle Incident Management Team in southeastern Wyoming and northern Colorado.  He and his team developed management strategies to deal with a large bark beetle infestation across 2.5 million acres of National Forest.  Prior to this, Kyhl was the District Ranger for the Laramie Ranger District on the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests, located in Laramie, WY.

Kyhl and his wife Sharon have two sons, both of whom are graduates of the University of Wyoming. Kyhl replaces Jacque Buchanan who transferred to the Rocky Mountain Regional Office this past March.
