The Black Hills National Forest has a new supervisor.  

Mark Van Every oversees everything on Forest Service land in the Black Hills from the effort to fight forest fires and pine beetles to efforts to ensure public access and protect public resources.

Van Every took the helm in the new position this summer.    He’s now had some time to settle into the job, and he sat down in the Rapid City studio with SDPB’s Charles Michael Ray.  Click play below to hear the interview.

SDPB’s Charles Michael Ray also spoke with Lori Walsh on the new supervisor position and issues of forest management in the Black Hills.
