New Shasta Lake District Ranger Sara Acridge introduced

REDDING, Calif. — Shasta-Trinity National Forest Supervisor Scott Russell is pleased to introduce the new National Recreation Area and Shasta Lake District Ranger, Sara Acridge. “Sara brings tremendous skills to our team and we are excited about her joining us,” said Russell. For the past five years, Sara worked as a Resource Management Supervisor at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Redding Field Office. She has a Master of Public Administration degree from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Science degree from New Mexico Tech. Sara is married and enjoys reading, running, yoga, and making stained glass artwork.

Sara has lived in California for the past nine years and understands how wildfire has shaped communities in the North state. Seeing firsthand how people support one another during these times of crisis has helped reinforce her desire to properly manage and care for public lands and serve the communities that surround them.  As poet Mattie Stepanek said, "Unity is strength. . . when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved."

One of her goals as District Ranger is to understand the different values the community has around the National Recreation Area and Shasta Lake Ranger District and work together to find common ground and solutions to areas of concern. Welcome, Sara!
