Re-Green coordinator mixes work and passion

Andy Bourelle

Susan-Marie Hagen is looking forward with great enthusiasm to a new responsibility in her life – coordinator of the Tahoe Re-Green program.

“I love this work,” she said.

Hagen, an employee of the U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, has collaboration experience with state, federal and local agencies. She has worked as a ranger for Sacramento’s Department of Parks and Recreation, the executive director of the Lake Tahoe Museum and the founder and first president of the Sacramento Local Conservation Corps, a program providing hands-on training for young adults who perform community service projects.

Prior to the appointment as coordinator, Hagen worked with Re-Green, assisting in coordination of the incident command system, public meetings and events. She also has helped Re-Green locate funding partners and assisted in researching, writing and administering grants.

Re-Green is a coalition of more than 30 member organizations in the Lake Tahoe Basin which work together to help reduce the threat of wildfires.

“I love doing this work,” she said. “I like bringing all these different views and perspectives together to make a real difference in the Tahoe Basin. It’s really an incredible opportunity to help make it all work.”
