MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The top U.S. Forest Service official for Vermont’s Green Mountain National Forest and the Finger Lakes National Forest in New York is getting a new job in Washington.

Colleen Pelles Madrid is going to become the deputy director of Watershed, Fish, Wildlife, Air and Rare Plants in the Forest Service’s Washington office.

Madrid says she’s enjoyed her time in Vermont and New York. She says the two states understand the value of community and helping one another through difficult times.

White Mountain National Forest Deputy Forest Supervisor Dee Hines will serve as acting supervisor for the Green Mountain and Finger Lakes National Forest until a permanent replacement for Madrid can be named.
