J. M. Mitchell

J. M. Mitchell

J.M. Mitchell had a long career with the National Park Service, knew the conflict over public policy, and knows where the bodies are buried. He was Chief of the agency's Biological Resource Management Division and retired after 36 years of service, having worked in Yosemite, Grand Canyon and Zion National Parks, Washington, D.C. and Fort Collins, Colorado. He worked on many of the most controversial issues facing the national parks, and knew the privilege--and sometimes the pain--of public service. He and his wife divide their time between Denver and their ranch on Colorado's western slope.
