Every year, OSMP lands see more than 6 million visits – that’s more than Rocky Mountain National Park! Rangers take pride in safeguarding the city’s natural and cultural resources, along with protecting the thousands of visitors who access Boulder’s public lands every day.
In order to provide the best service possible, all Rangers are required to maintain several certifications that allow them to respond and handle the variety of calls that occur every day. They are required to be state certified peace officers, emergency medical responders and red carded wildland fire fighters. They are also trained environmental educators, which enables them to serve as stewards of the land, helping to educate the public about Boulder’s rich wildlife habitats and its diverse ecosystems.
