Alex Sienkiewicz Support

Removed as Yellowstone District Ranger on June 16, 2017
Due to public outcry & Support - Restored Oct. 2017



Alex Sienkiewicz was removed from his position as Yellowstone District Ranger mid June,
due to pressure from a small group of landowners in the Crazy Mountains who are also outfitters, members of Montana Outfitters & Guides Association, Montana Farm Bureau Federation and the Montana Stockgrowers Association. Those landowners did not like District Ranger Sienkiwicz doing his job, according to Forest Service Policy, managing for multiple use, which includes public access, on our historical prescriptive access trails and roads, to our federally managed public lands.

These landowners leveraged their organization positions and connections to Senator Steve Daines, US FS Chief Thomas Tidwell, Region 1 Regional Forester Leanne Marten and newly appointed Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, writing letters of complaint, including false allegations. No one did due diligence, to investigate the false allegations, before moving the lies up the chain of command.

Shortly after Ag Sec. Sonny Perdue was in Montana for an Ag Summit in May 2017, Alex Sienkiewicz was removed from his position as the Yellowstone District Ranger.

EMWH took the FS FOIA documents, submitted a Public Comment defending
Alex Sienkiewicz with Refutation Documents proving he was doing his job
according to FS Policy & Regulations.

Have you been in the Crazy Mountains?

If you have been in the Crazy Mountains...

  • perhaps you received a citation when you were on a FS Trail on their map;
  • perhaps you have been on one of these contested trail and you thankfully did not ask landowner permission or sign in and would like to add your account to the prescriptive easement history;
  • perhaps you would just like to share your story and/or some pictures of what these particular public lands and access mean to you?

If so, please contact Kathryn :


Crazy Mountain Public Access Page

I beg you to show the same level of defense for our public access and Alex Sankiewicz's reinstatement as Yellowstone District Ranger, by raising your concerns to the same officials that the privatizers just did with false allegations. Because when you see the roll out of information to come and the players agendas, you will agree, this isn't just about one man and his job, it is about what he was doing as a steward of our public lands that others greedily desire for their own.
