After nearly 23 years of challenging and rewarding adventures, Fred Moosman, a supervisory protection specialist at El Morro, will be hanging up his flat hat and retiring from the National Park Service on January 31st.
Fred began his NPS career in 1990 as a seasonal ranger at Walnut Canyon National Monument outside of Flagstaff, Arizona. He continued on as a permanent employee at Big Bend National Park and Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, served as chief ranger at Coronado National Memorial and El Morro, and then served as protection specialist at El Morro and El Malpais National Monuments under a combined administration.
Fred would like to thank all of his co-workers through the years for the exceptional camaraderie and good times and extends wishes for a safe and prosperous year to the entire Park Service family. Fred is retiring to his home in the mountains of west-central New Mexico and looks forward to spending quality time with his family, friends and the surrounding natural beauty.
