The National Park Service, established over 100 years ago, strives to protect various resources in over 400 sites across the country. To accomplish this goal, the National Park Service employs various types of rangers whose unique roles support the mission of the NPS.

Join an education ranger as they explore these roles throughout the Park Service and see examples of these rangers at Rocky through this interactive and engaging live program.

Search and rescue rangers assist in a rescue mission

This program requires a pre-lesson (attached below) to be conducted prior to connecting with the ranger. Students will research types of rangers at RMNP and complete their own "Rocky Ranger" log.
