Safety First - Emerald Lake Hike
The Association of National Park Rangers, International Ranger Federation and the World Ranger Congress organizing team would like to extend sincere thanks to Jacob Wells and his co-workers and all the others that volunteered to serve as "Official Greeters" for our international guests arriving at the Denver International Airport. Traveling is never easy and many of our fellow rangers have not been to the US before. We know they appreciated your smiling faces and willingness to help them get their luggage and to find the transportation up to the
YMCA of the Rockies.
Thank you again for all you did to help!
