Each year the US For­est Ser­vice presents a Na­tional Range­land Man­age­ment Award to an em­ployee for out­stand­ing achieve­ment for on-the-ground man­age­ment of range­lands. South­west­ern Re­gional Forester Cal Joyner pre­sented Gila Na­tional For­est range staff mem­ber Aaron Baldridge of the Re­serve Ranger Dis­trict with the Na­tional Range­land Man­age­ment Award in Septem­ber.

Ar­ron Baldridge was pre­sented the award at the an­nual Di­ver­sity Day cel­e­bra­tion on the Gila Na­tional For­est. Ac­cord­ing to Joyner, “dur­ing post fire ac­tiv­i­ties his lead­er­ship abil­ity and suc­cess work­ing with per­mit­tees al­lowed for ap­pro­pri­ate re­source re­cov­ery of range­lands and re­duced im­pacts from live­stock grazing ac­tiv­i­ties.”

Baldridge was cited for his ex­cel­lence in ef­fec­tive lead­er­ship and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills work­ing with live­stock grazing per­mit­tees, in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary re­source spe­cial­ists, lo­cal gov­ern­ments, con­gres­sional staffers and an as­sort­ment of for­est users. “I think work­ing with ranch­ers and the com­mu­nity to achieve a common goal is very sat­is­fy­ing,” said Baldridge. “It’s a group ef­fort and ev­ery­one’s con­tri­bu­tion is im­por­tant.”
