The U.S. Forest Service announced Friday, December 21 that Diana Trujillo has been selected as the forest and grassland supervisor for Pike and San Isabel National Forests, Cimarron and Commanche National Grasslands.
Trujillo brings 31 years of interagency federal service to the position, according to a press release.
She previously served as national director for the Forest Service Job Corps Program in Lakewood. Before that she was deputy forest supervisor for Pike and San Isabel National Forests, Cimarron and Commanche National Grasslands (PSICC).
Trujillo has also served as district ranger, regional recreation director, policy analyst, natural resources specialist and park ranger over the course of her career.
Her first federal job was on the PSICC in Fairplay, and she said she is happy to be returning.
“I have a soft spot in my heart for the PSICC because of the people, its complexity and natural resource diversity,” Trujillo said in the release. “It has issues and resources that are representative of those across the U.S. Forest Service all rolled into one incredibly diverse, beautiful forest and grassland unit.” said Trujillo.
The PSICC stretches from central and southeast Colorado to southwest Kansas and includes eight ranger districts: Leadville, Salida, San Carlos, South Platte, South Park, Pikes Peak and Comanche in Colorado and Cimarron in Kansas.
