Transit/Parking & Venue Information
  • TBD.  We are looking for a new location!

We will be using the Northwest Rangers regional training manual, which is acceptable training for most regional events in BC, Washington, and Oregon. There is not yet a trainee manual that we can share with you, however, you can prepare yourself by checking out the Black Rock Ranger Manual, as it is the foundation of our training.

What To Bring
  • A chair or cushion
  • Notebook and pen
  • Water bottle / cup
  • A snack (we will have only two 10min breaks, no lunch)
Post-Training Ranger Social

After training, you are invited to decompress and share your thoughts & experiences at the Ranger Social.   Destination TBD.

Thank You, Ranger!

It takes a community to help make our events a compassionate and supportive place. Thank you, Ranger, you are so appreciated.
