Margaret Milligan

Milligan (formerly Grosenick) oversees the timber/forestry program in Idaho’s Salmon-Challis National Forest, managing 1.8 million acres. She and her team use a variety of treatments to manage the forested public land, including prescribed burning, pre-commercial thinning, commercial timber sales, watershed restoration and wildlife habitat enhancement projects. “My favorite part of my job is working in some of the most beautiful places in this country and being responsible for ensuring that they are managed properly,” she says.
