After 27 years of working in the outdoors, Evergreen resident Jerry Brinker is set to retire at the end of July. But that won’t mean a radical change.
His plans? “Hunt, fish, work on tractors.” That, and volunteer for the state Division of Wildlife, the agency from which he will retire.
Brinker, a DOW wildlife technician, said working for the agency was the “chance of a lifetime,” and his desire to work while surrounded by nature can be traced to his childhood.
