The Manti-La Sal National Forest welcomes new Forest Supervisor Ryan Nehl. He comes to the forest from the Malheur National Forest in John Day, Oregon, where he was the deputy supervisor.

Nehl worked on the Malheur from June 2015 to the present and before that he worked for the Department of Veterans Affairs. Prior to starting federal service in 2007, he worked for the Chrysler Corporation and the Howard County Health Department in Indiana.

While working on the Malheur, Nehl served as the agency administrator for the 2017 Rainbow Family Gathering and Great American Solar Eclipse. He also served temporary assignments as the deputy forest supervisor for the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest and forest supervisor for the Umatilla National Forest.

“One of my main goals is to enhance relationships with the counties, tribes and other partners,” he said. “Additionally, I look forward to leading the forest in developing a revised land and resource management plan by engaging stakeholders and incorporating best available science.”

Nehl will live in Price with his wife, Sherry, their four sons and their dog.
