08 Oct LAw Enforcement with the Forest Service
My name is Ariel Rodriguez. I reside in Montana but attained a bachelor’s in Durango, CO in Business Management and minor in Economics and Environmental Policy. I’ve been working for the Forest Service since 2015 on the Lolo’s fire crew in Seeley Lake, MT. Fire has helped me gain experience, a work ethic, and a college degree and recently opened up a new career in Law Enforcement. Starting with the idea of a Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) with the Forest Service has been a rewarding path thus far. Being able to be a part of something bigger than myself and
able to protect the National Forest System Lands has been eye-opening. I am excited to continue on a journey within the Forest Service and thankful for the Environment for the Americas for helping me through this new path.
