Todd Stiles named Jackson District Ranger by BTNF

JACKSON, Wyo. — Bridger-Teton National Forest (BTNF) has named Todd Stiles as District Ranger for Jackson.

In the last year, the BTNF played a bit of personnel shuffle as forest leadership moved in and out of positions in the Jackson area.

In June, Stiles picked up the role as acting district ranger from Rob Hoelscher who had filled Mary Moore’s shoes in February of 2020.

Prior to this position, Stiles had served as the Blackrock District Ranger since 2015. There, he oversaw a complex program on 722,063 acres and in 2020 he was awarded Ranger of the Year.

“Todd Stiles embodies the best of who we are as an agency, seamlessly blending the hands-on field skills of the first Forest Service rangers with the communication and relationship skills needed to navigate today’s challenging and complex social, political and natural resource issues,” wrote the Forest Service.

For background, the Forest is divided into six areas known as Ranger Districts. Each district has its own management staff led by the District Ranger located at the Ranger District office. The Forest Supervisor’s office, located in Jackson, houses various program managers and resources utilized by Districts in managing the forest.
