At FSPW we have a dedicated board of directors, comprised of individuals from diverse backgrounds who are integrated into many other organizations in our communities. Each person has made a long term commitments to our mission. Many have served since our inception 9 years ago. Occasionally, we add someone when they bring a unique strength or perspective.
We are pleased to announce that as of this week Maggie Pittman has joined our board! Maggie’s background and passion will bring to us a valuable perspective and an enthusiasm that inspires.
Please join me in welcoming Maggie to FSPW and to the community of our partners who share a passion for Wilderness! For those of you who don’t yet know Maggie, I’d like to share some of her background.
Maggie Pittman, a Short Biography
Maggie retired in 2012 from a 32-year career with the US Forest Service. She most recently served as the deputy forest supervisor of the Idaho Panhandle National Forest and the Missoula District Ranger on the Lolo National Forest. In 2006 she received the Brass Lantern Award from the Montana Wilderness Association for her collaborative leadership during the Lolo forest planning efforts. She has a BS in forestry and recreation resource management from the University of Montana.
Maggie grew up in the Pacific Northwest and has spent many days hiking and biking the trails and roads throughout. Her hikes in the Cabinet and Selkirk Mountains have solidified her desire and commitment to protect the Wilderness character of the Scotchman Peaks. She lives in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho where she is established as a professional meeting facilitator and certified mediator in organizational problem solving.
