Red Lodge, MT, December 18, 2023— The Custer Gallatin National Forest announces Amy Haas as the new Beartooth District Ranger, replacing Ken Coffman, former District Ranger.
Amy Haas was born and raised in North Dakota, where she earned her degree in Botany and Genetics. Most recently she worked on the Shoshone National Forest as a Silviculturist. Haas has over 23 years of experience in timber, silviculture, and fire management, working in various regions and forests. Her diverse background has enabled her to develop well-rounded leadership skills and an extensive knowledge base in different work programs. Haas also served a successful four-month appointment as the Beartooth District Ranger earlier this year.
“I am thrilled to become the Beartooth District Ranger on the Custer Gallatin National Forest. Said Amy Haas. “Many know the Red Lodge area is a special place for our family.”
Haas resides with her spouse, Tim, and their daughter, Avryl, in the area outside of Cody, Wyoming. As a family, they enjoy spending time on the ski hill and watching Avryl compete in alpine skiing races. They also like to spend time on the water, fishing for Walleye, and engaging in activities such as elk hunting, traveling, savoring good cuisine, and bird hunting with their dogs. Their family motto is “Work hard to play hard.”
Please join us in welcoming Amy permanently back to the Beartooth Ranger District.
