Volunteer Wilderness Rangers
Volunteer Wilderness Rangers



Volunteer Wilderness Rangers perform all duties of an official Forest Service wilderness ranger besides law enforcement. Our wilderness ranger program is a decade old and 20 active rangers strong. Wilderness rangers are charged with performing light trail maintenance, trash removal, educating wilderness visitors on Leave No Trace and Wilderness education. They are a helpful presence in our wilderness areas. There is special training involved and we accept committed volunteers that will dedicate themselves to training and then agreeing to at least 1-2 ranger "patrols" per month. Training will include:

  • Leave No Trace education
  • Wilderness education (what is capital "W" wilderness?)
  • Two-way radio transmission and protocol
  • Land navigation
  • Basic first aid/CPR
  • Authority of the Resource technique for visitor encounters
