    My son is very interested in becoming a Forest Ranger in the Adirondack. When, in the near future do you see new training and hiring? He would like to sign up. He Had Graduated from Plattsburgh College with a BA degree in Environmental Studies with a minor in Environmental Science. That is his lifetime dream of working and being a member of the great team of the DEC.

    While Chairman of The Adirondack Association of Towns and Villages we passed a resolution in 1993 urging then Governor Mario Cuomo to hire more NY State Forest Rangers.

    We succeeded and the DEC was authorized within the State’s Budget to hire more Forest Rangers.

    Today as an individual and someone who served the people of our Adirondack community and region for over 22 1/2 years I still see the need for more Forest Rangers.

    Get the AATV on board I think it will help our cause.

    Remember they’re local community elected officials who represent the residents of our Adirondack Park

    It’s amazing ORDA got another 107 million dollars in this years budget, bringing the five year total to well over 500 million. shamefully we don’t have enough money to properly staff ECO’s and Forrest Rangers

    I can’t believe NYS is NOT bringing on more Rangers. Lets get educated people in at the top that understand what a Ranger does. This situation is so dangerous for the few Rangers we do have! PLEASE WAKE UP!
