Forest ranger’s fight for access earns award

Forest ranger Alex Sienkiewicz has been on the frontlines fighting to protect public access to public land in the Crazy Mountains. Things grew so heated he was temporarily removed from his job when well-connected access opponents complained to higher-ups in Washington.

Sienkiewicz is back on the job now, and the Cinnabar Foundation honored his work with the Jim Posewitz Professional Conservation Award. The award was presented to Sienkiewicz last Friday in Helena.
