Genny Wilson is the new deputy forest supervisor for the Plumas National Forest.
Forest Supervisor Earl Ford, who announced Wilson’s arrival earlier this month, said the new deputy already knows the area.
“Genny started her Forest Service career on the Plumas National Forest in 1988, so this is a homecoming for her,” Ford said.
Wilson comes to the Plumas from the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest in Nevada where she has served for the better part of six years as the district ranger for the Carson Ranger District in Carson City, Nev.
Prior to that she was the wildlife program manager for eight years for the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest Supervisor’s Office.
Wilson has worked on many challenging projects in the eastern Sierra and throughout Nevada. Those projects include burned area rehabilitation, large timber sales, livestock grazing management, deer migration studies, prescribed fire and a variety of summer and winter recreation projects.
“Genny’s broad experiences and familiarity with local area natural resource issues make her a valuable asset to the forest and our communities,” noted Ford.
Wilson has a Bachelor of Science degree in wildlife management from Humboldt State University and has worked for the U.S. Forest Service as a wildlife biologist for more than 20 years.
An avid hiker and outdoor enthusiast, Wilson grew up in California and has two grown daughters. She replaces Laurence Crabtree, who became forest supervisor of the Eldorado National Forest in July 2013.
