I’m pretty impressed with the knowledge of our NPS rangers at Yosemite. Only one exception, when a blog reader told me a ranger said that most hikers begin their trek up Half Dome at 3 am. WOW is that bogus. They do their best, but apparently some “wing it.” Here are some of the courses rangers can take to keep sharp.
Managing Archeological Collections
Archeology for Interpreters
The Wilderness Act of 1964
Wilderness Visitor Use Management
Natural Resource Management in Wilderness
NPS Mission and History Climate Change Leadership Series
Preservation and Treatment of Park Cultural Resources
Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act
Use of Force Instructor Training Fire Officer and Instructor Course
National Historic Preservation Act
So it’s not an easy job. A tip of the hat to our Yosemite Rangers!
