Wilderness Ranger Experiences

Posted at 09:00 /shows/skills [link [Bookmark Link]]
Listen now:

[Sendi Kalcic, Brent Carpenter, and Amy McElvany] This skills program is about the job of being a backcountry ranger in national forest wilderness. It's a frequently romanticized job with lots of responsibility. Three rangers talk candidly about their experiences.

Sendi Kalcic and Brent Carpenter are professional backcountry wilderness rangers who have worked in the Desolation Wilderness of the Eldorado National Forest near Lake Tahoe, California. Amy McElvany is a volunteer wilderness ranger in the Sierra National Forest, working out of the High Sierra Ranger District.

At the end of the show, there's a correction from last week's show, and a request to offer your feedback and suggestions for the show.
