Park Ranger

Mission Statement

Encourage responsible recreation behaviors through positive management techniques. These techniques will protect user needs, be environmentally responsible, and work to reduce conflicts between user groups while protecting public health and safety.

Education & Enforcement

Spokane County Parks with funding assistance from the State of Washington Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO) has developed an Education and Enforcement (E&E) program. The E&E program is designed to preserve and protect outdoor opportunities while reducing conflict between user groups and neighboring land owners.
