SHERIDAN - The Bighorn National Forest is announcing Andrew Johnson as the new forest supervisor, reporting January 21, 2018. Andrew will be following Bill Bass who served as forest supervisor for nearly two decades.

Andrew comes to us from the LaCroix Ranger District of the Superior National Forest where he is currently the District Ranger. He started his Forest Service career on the Manti-LaSal in Utah as a Forestry Technician in trails and recreation, before working on the Coconino in Region 3, the Flathead in Region 1, as well as detail assignments as a Deputy District Ranger on the Inyo in California, and Deputy Forest Supervisor on the Coronado in Arizona.

A native of rural northern New York State, Johnson worked as a journalist for his family's newspaper business before changing career paths. He worked as Assistant Forest Ranger for the state of New York through college, and completed a Masters in Forestry from the State University of New York. Through much of his career he worked in recreation and wilderness management, but also worked with range and minerals management in Montana. As a Ranger in Minnesota, he manages a large timber and fuels management program as well as a portion of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, the most heavily visited Wilderness in the Nation.
