Fresh from a stint as parking attendant at Schweitzer, North Carolina native Nathan Mynatt joined our staff today, Monday, April 13, as our new Assistant Program Coordinator. Nathan, who took the job at Schweitzer last winter in hopes that he WOULD be hired for this position, has a degree in Political Science from UNC-Chapel Hill (seems they have a basketball team or something), and two years experience as a wilderness ranger with Southern Appalachian Wilderness Stewards in the southeast.
“Nathan is a great fit for the Friends,” said FSPW exec Phil Hough. “We are very excited to have him on board.”
Nathan is replacing Kristen Nowicki, who is taking a position with the Forest Service. “It’s sad that Kristen is leaving us,” Hough said, “but we are grateful to be able to put someone of Nathan’s caliber in the position.”
In his spare time, Nathan enjoys backpacking, cycling, skiing, climbing, and anything else that gets him outside. If you can’t find him in the office, chances are he is off enjoying the natural beauty of North Idaho, western Montana, and the Pacific Northwest.
