About the Roving Rangers
Where we Work
From Memorial Day through early September, the Roving Rangers lead programs each weekend local campgrounds. The partnership also provides an interpretive ranger at the top of the Arizona Snowbowl Scenic Skyride to answer questions and describe the natural history and panoramic views amid the spectacular San Francisco Peaks. Some of the most beloved programs include beautiful, exciting guided walks in Flagstaff's three, local national monuments and throughout hidden trails of the Coconino National Forest.
Roving Rangers is an example of a working, successful, public-private partnership. The National Park Service and U.S. Forest Service (USFS) partner with Arizona Snowbowl and Recreation Resource Management (RRM). RRM is contracted by the U.S. Forest Service to run campgrounds in the Coconino National Forest and to provide quality interpretation at USFS campgrounds. The partnership helps RRM fulfill their program requirements and enables NPS and USFS rangers to provide visitors with quality experiences.
