El Dorado National Forest boss named

A former district ranger from Mount Hood National Forest in Oregon will be taking over as chief of the El Dorado National Forest.

John Berry, who has worked for the Forest Service since 1974, is scheduled to become forest supervisor on May 7.

Berry holds a bachelor’s degree in forestry and a master’s degree in hydrology. He worked as a district ranger of the Clackamas River Ranger District in the Mount Hood National Forest since 1986.

Berry’s wife, Glenda, is a teacher, and they have two daughters who live in the Portland area.

Berry is a native of Omak, Wash.

The El Dorado National Forest abuts the Lake Tahoe Basin and covers 884,688 acres in the Sierra Nevada. The Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit and El Dorado National Forest share Desolation Wilderness.

Tahoe’s unit of the forest service also is in the process of finding a new forest supervisor. That post likely will be filled this spring.
