Park Ranger Education

Whether working for local or state parks departments, or at national parks and historic sites, park rangers are responsible for educating the visiting public while serving as guardians of our nation’s protected wilderness areas.

With the right experience and a degree related to parks and recreation, natural resource management, natural sciences or even law enforcement, you may qualify to begin the training you need to become a park ranger at the local, state or national level.
