To celebrate 40 years of service, the Urban Park Rangers joined community members for a special presentation to officially name May 15 “Urban Park Ranger Day.”
The rangers led families in a fire-making station, birdwatching, and an adventure in Fort Greene Park.
The rangers connect New Yorkers to the natural world through environmental education, outdoor recreation, wildlife management, and active conservation. They lead free, public events and activities in parks throughout New York City.
Initially intended to administer first aid, provide public information, and exhibit a uniformed presence in city parks, the Urban Park Rangers have evolved tremendously. Today, they are environmental experts with a wealth of knowledge about natural elements, wildlife, and crucial outdoor skills. Their primary responsibility is to provide environmental education, interpretation, and outdoor adventure programs to New Yorkers.
