New Chair of the Park Ranger CoP Advisory Board
It is my pleasure to announce that Tom Ehrke, Park Manager at Pine Flat Lake, Sacramento
District, has been selected as the new Chair of the Park Ranger Community of Practice
Advisory Board. Tom brings considerable field level perspective to the table, having worked
in the St. Paul, Fort Worth and Sacramento Districts at all levels of the USACE Park Ranger
program. Tom is a SPD Visitor Assistance course instructor, a SPK Boat Operator trainer, a
former PROSPECT O&M Contracting Course instructor, an active member on the Recreation
Leadership Advisory Team, and recently completed a temporary appointment as the Chief of
SPK's Operations Technical Section. Tom was also very instrumental in supporting the Corps
Mandatory Life Jacket Wear Study by volunteering his project to be part of the national test.
Tom will be contacting the members of the Advisory Board in the near future to begin
setting the Board's agenda for the coming year. I appreciate Tom's compassion and
dedication in serving as the Chair for this important Community of Practice.
