MISSOULA, Mont.— The Lolo National Forest Supervisor’s Office is pleased to announce that Quinn Carver has accepted the Ranger position for the Seeley Lake Ranger District located in Seeley Lake, Montana. Carver served as the interim Ranger at Seeley Lake for the past several months.
“Quinn’s leadership style and his focus on building relationships with the surrounding communities is a good fit for Seeley Lake,” stated Carolyn Upton, Lolo National Forest Supervisor. “He has a wealth of experience to draw from and we are excited to get him in place as we head into the summer season.”
Carver served as a wildlife biologist on the Helena National Forest for his first permanent career posting in 1994. Since then, he has spent the majority of his career in Montana along with some time spent working in Idaho and Alaska. Although Carver’s most recent posting was on the Kootenai National Forest as the Natural Resources Staff Officer, Carver will draw from his former experience as Ranger of the Krassel District on the Payette National Forest in Idaho.
“I am very happy to be back in the Ranger position – especially in Seeley Lake. The position of Ranger is one that seems to suit me and my personality well,” said Carver. “I am honored and excited to get back to the work of the Ranger on such a remarkable District. I have been around in the community for several months and I look forward to continuing to focus on building strong relationships and working with partners on projects, now and into the future.”
Carver will be moving to Seeley Lake with his wife Susan. When he’s not in the Ranger’s office he is looking forward to reestablishing his love for fishing, hunting, volunteering for the local Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) chapter, and enjoying the National Forest with his two boys when they visit.
