US Forest Service Region 2 Botanist, and all-around awesome guy Andy Kratz is packing up his flora and retiring. We thank Andy for his excellent service to the Forest Service, and for his leadership in rare plant conservation. A retirement party is scheduled for Andy on Dec. 14th. Congratulations Andy, and we wish you many happy days botanizing to your heart’s content in the Colorado alpine.
Best wishes from everyone at CNHP!
