Duluth—Connie Cummins is joining the Superior National Forest as the new Forest Supervisor. Connie brings a wealth of experience, including nine years as the District Ranger on the LaCroix Ranger District, and two years as the Forest Supervisor from the Fremont-Winema National Forest in Lakeview, Oregon.
“While I have thoroughly enjoyed my short time in the West and its many opportunities and challenges, I am very excited to be returning to the Midwest and to a Forest which holds a special place in my heart,” said Cummins. She is also excited to be close to family, “I am happily looking forward to experiencing some family time as well as dusting off my cross-country skis, lacing up my trail shoes and hitting the trails and lakes of Northern Minnesota.”
Cummins will fill the Forest Supervisor position formerly occupied by Brenda Halter, who retired in June. She assumes her new duties in August.
