News Release

Association of National Park Rangers statement in observance of Juneteenth

21 Jun 2021

Park rangers protect the places and share the stories of America, including the places that memorialize the painful chapters of slavery and the fight for emancipation. This year, as rangers are officially marking this important day for the first time, we acknowledge that our country needs to continue to reckon with the legacy of slavery. The Association of National Park Rangers is glad to see attention focussed on this significant aspect of American history, and we hope it will encourage new conversations about race and equity as we strive to create a more perfect union.

Rangers are conservation professionals who do all kinds of jobs to keep parks welcoming, healthy, and safe. On construction sites and trails, in visitor centers and research labs, on patrol and behind the scenes in parks across the United States, Rangers work every day to protect America’s best idea.

Learn more about their work and how you can build a career protecting parks.

Park professionals from every division and discipline join ANPR for camaraderie and opportunities to network with peers from across the United States. Whether you are a Ranger today or are a Ranger at heart, join us in supporting the important work of National Park Service staff.

From Jackson Hole to Bar Harbor, our annual rendezvous is where rangers meet rangers from across the United States.

Whether you want to see old friends or meet a professional peer, Ranger Rendezvous is the best place to discuss the state of the park profession and develop relationships in our national park community.
