Happy 112th Birthday to our friends at the U.S. Forest Service. Though forest reserves were first administered by Interior, the Forest Service was created in 1905 as part of the Department of Agriculture with Gifford Pinchot serving as Chief Forester and now manages almost 200 million acres of public land. Among these rich forests and grasslands are places of spectacular beauty, like Trillium Lake at Mt. Hood National Forest in Oregon. Photo by Daniel Rice (www.sharetheexperience.org).
