PHILIPSBURG — The U.S. Forest Service announced that Cameron Rasor has been selected as the new permanent ranger for the Pintler Ranger District in Philipsburg on the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest.
Rasor has served as the Rangeland Management Specialist on the Pintler Ranger District since 2005, and recently has filled in as the acting ranger.
Born in Idaho, Rasor grew up in Kalispell, and studied range-livestock management at the University of Idaho, graduating in 1999. He has worked for private timber industry, the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation, as well as the Bureau of Land Management.
“I’m excited to continue my career on the Beaverhead-Deerlodge working with a great staff, awesome community, and in a landscape often referred to as God’s country,” Rasor said. “I’m excited for the opportunity to continue to carry out our mission in a different role, build relationships with partners, and advocate for positive change.”
As district ranger, Cameron will be responsible for all National Forest land within the 731,000-acre Pintler Ranger District. Cameron replaces former District Ranger Charlene Bucha, who remains in the area but is now working on projects for the U.S. Forest Service headquarters.
