The Superior National Forest has announced a series of open houses at its headquarters and ranger stations across the three million acre forest in the next few months. “Attendees will meet staff, learn about career opportunities, and engage with project and program managers on current and upcoming forest projects,” the agency says.

Forest Supervisor Tom Hall will join local district rangers for all the open houses.

The first open house was held at the Gunflint District Office in Grand Marais on October 10. WTIP News interviewed Supervisor Hall at the event and provided update on several big stories centered on the National Forest this year.

Hall said the open houses are similar to events held last year, shortly after he started as Supervisor.

“We got such good feedback from the public, from our partners, we wanted to make this an annual event,” he said.

Topics of recent interest include the Lutsen Mountains expansion plan, a Memorandum of Understanding signed with northern Minnesota Ojibwe bands, towboats, and commercial services.
