Gorham, NH – December 3, 2020-  The White Mountain National Forest is pleased to welcome new Androscoggin District Ranger, Josh Sjostrom.  Josh comes to the Androscoggin Ranger District from the Mother Lode Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in central California, where he has served as the Assistant Field Manager. 

Prior to his service with the BLM Josh worked for the Forest Service for almost 15 years, beginning his federal career on the Androscoggin Ranger District of the White Mountain National Forest as a Forestry Technician.  “I’m very pleased to welcome Josh back to the White Mountain National Forest,” said White Mountain National Forest Supervisor Derek Ibarguen.  “His diverse background and leadership will be a great benefit on the District and the White Mountain NF.”

Josh grew up in Gorham, NH and holds a political science degree with a minor in business administration from the University of Maine.  He is an avid skier and hiker – and Red Sox fan – and looks forward to coming home to the Mt. Washington Valley.  “I am excited for the opportunity to work with the talented staff of the White Mountain National Forest,” said Sjostrom.  “I’m also looking forward to developing and strengthening the many valuable Forest Service partnerships here in the North Country.”  

His Forest Service career also includes time as a Wildland Firefighter Apprentice and Hotshot on the Klamath National Forest in Region 5, and as a Natural Resource Specialist on the Eldorado National Forest where he spent almost 9 years.
