Incumbents of these positions organize and conduct search and rescue operations; educate the public in wilderness safety and natural resource care; and administer the State's wildland fire-management program, including wildfire suppression and prescribed fire activities.

The deadline to apply is Wednesday, August 10, 2022

The current salary that New York State is offering for forest rangers is $59,448.
