Lake Mead National Recreation Area Honors All Rangers On World Ranger Day, July 31, 2007 38-07
Contact: Roxanne Dey, 702.293.8961
The National Park Service, Lake Mead National Recreation Area, joins hundreds of other parks around the world honoring its rangers (past, present, and future) who have had or will have the responsibility of protecting and caring for special public places so they can be safely experienced by visitors today, and for future generations.
“Lake Mead NRA was the nation’s first national recreation area created by Congress in 1964. The National Park Service and its Rangers have actually been managing the Recreation Area since the 1930s (initially under an agreement with the Bureau of Reclamation). Rangers at Lake Mead NRA have always had challenging and rewarding jobs. Our Rangers are the symbol of the National Park Service, who are committed to protecting natural and cultural resources and enabling visitors to have a safe and enjoyable visit. Please join me in honoring Rangers throughout the world who are preserving special and unique areas, species, and wildlife habitat for all of us,” said Superintendent Bill Dickinson.
