Park Ranger Glimpse

Welcome to the first Park Ranger Gateway Glimpse. These Glimpses will be sent periodically to highlight information of interest to the Park Ranger Community of Practice (CoP) that are available on the NRM Gateway.


Park Ranger CoP Gateway Page

The Park Ranger CoP has their own Gateway page. Please check it frequently for information important to your CoP.

Realigned Park Ranger CoP Advisory Board

The realigned Park Ranger CoP Advisory Board was announced in an August 2012 headquarters memo. The Board, which now consists primarily of project-level park rangers, will be supporting the ranger community by addressing many important safety and program issues and concerns.

Please note that two of the members listed in the memo have since rotated off the Board. You can see the current Board members listing on the NRM SmartBook: https://wwwel.wes.army.mil/nrm/smartbook/index.cf m?Code=Topic&Prog=rangercop&Id=0


NRM and Park Ranger SmartBooks and How to Maintain your Record

Every Park Ranger is a member of both the Natural Resources Management (NRM) and the Park Ranger CoPs, and should be listed the SmartBook of each. The NRM SmartBook gives a complete listing of logistical and POC information for each CoP member. The Park Ranger SmartBook is a briefer display of members names, duty stations, and professional organization affiliations. Each CoP gets different emails such as some Gateway Glimpses that go to just the Park Ranger CoP, so you want to make sure your listing is correct in both. If you transfer to a new location that is a good time to review and update your information.

You can help keep the SmartBook up to date by editing the records of Park Rangers who you know have retired (delete their record) or by adding/editing the records of those who do not have CAC access to add/update their own record.

    Park Ranger Facebook Page

    Are you aware that the Park Ranger CoP has a Corps Park Ranger facebook page? This provides another avenue to share across project, district and regional boundaries your ideas, photos, thoughts and lessons learned regarding NRM related programs. This page also serves as a new outlet to inform rangers about new initiatives and policies. Please take full advantage of this page and let your fellow park rangers know about it.

    The page as been set up as a person and a closed site, so the posts remain among rangers only. This also means that new members need to send a friend request to join. If your personal facebook page does not indicate that you are a Corps Park Ranger, please visit https://www.facebook.com/CorpsRangers to submit a friend request & in the request please put a note that you are a ranger.
