He held various positions in the organization including Interagency Hotshot Crew Foreman, Division Supervisor and ID Team leader for the Biscuit Fire Recovery Project. For five years, he also worked for the California Fire Program of the Wilderness Society. Rich has a degree in forestry and holds a Master’s degree in planning. He currently owns a small forest management company. He and his wife live in the mixed conifer forest of the Applegate where they do a considerable amount of under burning.
