Susan Moore, SFWO Field Supervisor, Retires

Wrapping up over 30 years of public service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Field Supervisor for much of California takes her first steps into retirement.  Moore came to the Sacramento Fish and Wildlife Office over 15 years ago after serving as Executive Director of the John Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor, the first partnership park in the National Park Service. Prior to that, she served as the first woman superintendent of Antietam National Battlefield. In addition to other assignments in the Park Service, Moore has worked in Washington, D.C., for the Assistant Secretary for Fish, Wildlife and Parks; the Heritage Conservation and Recreation Service; and the Bureau of Outdoor Recreation.

On her appointment to the position of Field Supervisor for the Sacramento Fish and Wildlife Office (SFWO) in 2006, Susan Moore said, “I want to explore ways we can work together with all interests, both to help meet our responsibilities and also to facilitate their interests.” True to her word, the SFWO has achieved impressive conservation results working across agencies and with public and private cooperation during her tenure.

Susan Moore is a veteran of federal service with a distinguished record for cooperation and success in protecting natural resources.  We celebrate her career and character as she transitions to a new walk of life with her husband and family.  She leaves with our thanks for her public service and recognition of her legacy.
