About Alt Public Lands

I spent nearly two decades as a ranger and firefighter for the U.S. Forest Service in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. 

A bunch of years in there was an under attended inauguration, exaggerations of crowd size by the administration, and their subsequent suspension of the NPS Twitter account. This immediate censorship led me to start @AltForestServ, one of the very first “Alt” #Resistance Twitter accounts. Over the next several year I highlighted the administration’s attempts to plunder our public lands, popularized the #KeepItPublic tag, and generally railed against the anti public land agenda being installed in the bureaucracy that controls our public land.

Eventually my fear of reprisal led me to distance my #Resistance rhetoric from my employer and I transitioned my Twitter account to @AltPublicLands. Now several years later I no longer work for the federal government and I am exploring ways to apply my nearly two decades of experience in public lands in positive ways.

I asked my fellow Twitter #Resisters for suggestions on how I could perhaps begin making some income to support my wife and young son, many quickly suggested Patreon. And here I am trying to find a new path in the world to support myself, my family, and the public lands I love.
