“I’m looking forward to Mary moving into this District Ranger position,” said Cecilia Seesholtz, Boise National Forest Supervisor. “She brings a wealth of knowledge in working with communities, especially in the northern portion of the Forest, and has excellent skills in developing partnerships and building relationships.”
Faurot is moving to Cascade from her current position as the acting Idaho City District Ranger where she has served for the past six months. She has had an active passion for becoming a district ranger for many years.
Mary’s permanent position on the Boise National Forest is the Forest’s Fisheries Program manager which she has held since September, 2009. Her prior experience includes fish biologist and program management positions on the Payette (1993-2009) and prior to those positions with the Umpqua National Forest, US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.
"I look forward to returning to an area that I love, and working with the community of Cascade, the Forest employees and the many partners involved in public land management,” said Faurot. “My initial primary focus will center on rebuilding old ties, and developing new relationships with the community and district employees.”
Mary is an avid outdoor enthusiast enjoying hiking, skiing, fishing, mountain biking, and water sports.
She has a Master’s degree in Fish and Wildlife Management from Montana State and a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Florida State University. Mary’s two grown children also work in natural resources management in Idaho which she is proud of.
