Norwood, Colorado, December 5, 2019 – The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison (GMUG) National Forests announce the selection of Megan Eno as the new Norwood District Ranger. She will report to the forest on December 9, 2019. Megan will be replacing Matt Zumstein, who departed his position as the Norwood Ranger in September of this year.

Megan joins the GMUG from the neighboring Manti-La Sal National Forest where she served as a Collaboration and Planning Specialist and lead for the forest’s Plan Revision team. She brings a wealth of expertise in partnership and planning, along with experience in recreation, wildland fire and timber, and a passion for working with communities and permitees.

“Above all, I’m excited to get on the ground. To get to know the staff, the community, and the district as best I can to manage the day to day activities and plan for the future” said Eno.

Megan received her undergraduate degree in international relations and economics from Franklin University in Switzerland, and a master’s degree in planning from Florida State University. She will be joined in Norwood by her partner, Eaton, and their five working horses. They look forward to making a home in a community where they have enjoyed packing and trail riding for many years. During her free time she is an avid amateur photographer, with a keen interest in astrophotography.
