Emrys Treasure has accepted the Regional Inventory, Monitoring and Assessment Coordinator position with the U.S. Forest Service Southern Region. Treasure joined the Eastern Threat Center in 2008 after a three-year internship and served as a biological scientist, and, later, a natural resources specialist and USDA Southeast Regional Climate Hub Coordinator. He began his new role with the Southern Region on October 2. Congratulations, Emrys!
