Hoppe named Field Soil Scientist of the Year

Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest (CNNF) Soil Scientist Dave Hoppe has been chosen as the Field Soil Scientist of the Year.

This national Forest Service "2012 Rise to the Future" award recognizes Hoppe for his two decades of outstanding work toward field soil science. Hoppe will travel to Washington, D.C. in May to receive the award.

Hoppe was chosen out of numerous nominations from across the country.

"We are very proud of Dave and his accomplishments. His contributions as a professional soil scientist and pioneering work have added great value to land management practices nationwide," Forest Supervisor Paul Strong said.

The work Hoppe is being recognized for includes contributing to nationwide soil disturbance monitoring protocols and long-term collaboration with the Natural Resources Conservation Service among others. He works tirelessly to integrate soil science into other program areas, and his model work on hundreds of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) analyses is used as the regional template.

Hoppe has been a Forest Service employee for 30 years and is from northern Wisconsin. He and his family live in Rhinelander.
