Welcome to Ranger Reading!

We have created Ranger Reading to develop a source of information for rangers and those interested in the protection of our natural and cultural resources, parks, forests, refuges, and public lands. It is our hope that this site will help to broaden your perspective about the ranger profession and to build your passion and interest in our mission “to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.” (National Park Service Act, August 25, 1916)
