From there, Kris has held several positions in recreation, and environmental planning, and most recently as District Ranger for five years on the Challis-Yankee Fork District of the Salmon-Challis National Forest. Kris also worked on the Huron Manistee National Forest as a wild and scenic river planner.
“Kris Stein has proven herself to be an excellent leader and is someone who brings people together to make good decisions for the land for the local communities,” said Forest Supervisor, John Laurence. “We are lucky to have her on-board starting here on the Wallowa-Whitman on June 16. I hope everyone will make her feel welcome.”
Kris’s son Kai is a gifted violinist and will be a sophomore at University of Idaho, Moscow next year. Both Kris and Kai enjoy hiking, fishing, camping, canoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. Kris holds a bachelor’s degree in Recreation Management and a master’s degree in Forest Management; both from Oregon State University.
