Park Ranger
By Phyllis Naegeli

1     Have you ever been to one of our national parks? Think about the people you met there. You remember -- the ones in uniforms with the funny hats. They are park rangers. They have many jobs to do at our national parks.
2     The most important job a park ranger has is safety. This is a big job. Some parks also have beaches, campgrounds, historical buildings, archaeological sites, and lakes. Because of these wonderful resources, many people visit our national parks. They hike, swim, take pictures, camp, and enjoy the sights. A ranger must keep visitors safe when they are in the park. He or she must also keep the animals in the park safe. And, rangers are responsible for protecting the historical and natural resources that are there.
3     Park rangers are specially trained to do their jobs. Most have college degrees. They may have studied biology or forestry. They also go through special training to help them work at a certain park. For example, someone who works at a historical park has to be trained to explain the historical features of the park. Some rangers lead classes on the natural resources in a park. Park rangers are trained in first aid and some are EMTs (emergency medical technicians). They may help someone who is hurt while visiting a park. A park ranger needs many skills to do his job.
