We are pleased to endorse the Larimer County Parks Ranger Excellence School

I would like to take this opportunity to voice my support and endorsement for the Ranger Excellence School training provided by The Larimer County Colorado Department of Natural Resources.   This one week training program is packed with subject matter essential for today’s ranger professionals serving in an ever-challenging field.  The cost is nominal for what the attendee will receive.   This kind of training is not widely available and I would encourage department administrators to take advantage of this unique opportunity for their rangers.
