Hello, my name is Barnie Gyant. I’m a deputy regional forester located in
the Pacific Southwest Region of the Forest Service, also known as Region 5. The Forest Service is a diverse organization
of over 30,000 people, responsible for managing 193 million acres of public land spread across
the United States from Puerto Rico to Alaska. The lands we manage are incredibly diverse,
from the rainforests in the Pacific Northwest, to the arid southwest, to the tallgrass prairies. Our jobs are as diverse as the landscapes
we manage, but every one of them contributes to fulfilling the mission of the Forest Service. Many of us have wondered how we fit into the
Forest Service, and how our jobs contribute to the agency mission. Lets meet a few of the fantastic men and women
who work very hard in support of this mission. My name is Richard Gonzalez, and I manage
for healthy sustainable forests, and to keep forested lands forested. My name is Tonya Wilkinson. I work at the Albuquerque Service Center budget

we see at the surface. Each of us contributes in our own way to sustaining
our nations’ forests and grasslands, delivering benefits to the public, helping the global
natural resource community make better management decisions, and making the Forest Service a
high-performing agency. It takes all of us, and all of our jobs, for
