Tim Clifford - retires from RAF Board of Directors

“If you just work on stuff that you like and you’re passionate about, you don’t have to have a master plan with how things will play out.” –  Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook.

Montana Westerner to Head Interior Department

Montana’s U.S. Representative Ryan Zinke has been tapped by President-elect Trump for Secretary of the Interior. Zinke, a retired Navy SEAL, served in Montana’s Senate before being elected twice to Congress. If confirmed by the Senate, he will begin in January.

“I’m a Teddy Roosevelt Republican,” he said in an interview. Montanans know Zinke as an outdoorsman, and protector of public lands.

RAF attends USFS Partners Event

 While in Washington, D.C. in early December, RAF President John McKenna and RAF Maryland Liaison Craig McCullough attended the annual U.S. Forest Service “Partners Reception”, a gathering of citizen groups that interact with the USFS.

Chief Tidwell gave John McKenna and Craig McCullough a warm welcome, expressing his appreciation for their attendance.
