Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Spokane District Manager Kurt Pindel announces the selection of Brie Chartier as the San Juan Islands National Monument Manager.
“Brie is an experienced planner with a background in outdoor and environmental education, to include being a Leave No Trace Master Educator,” Pindel said. “Brie also has a strong background in collaborative leadership, consensus building and building partnerships. She holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from Johnson State College and should be a great addition to the local community.”

The BLM manages 1,020 acres of lands within the San Juan Archipelago which became a National Monument through a Proclamation signed by President Obama on March 25, 2013. The National Monument includes BLM lands in San Juan, Whatcom and Skagit Counties.

Brie Chartier is scheduled to start her new position on May 9.
