Monthly Meet a Ranger: Ranger Steve!
It’s a cold and breezy day here at the Cove, and what better time to sit in your warm comfy offices or houses or wherever you might be and get to know a Cove Palisades State Park ranger! In this months “Meet a Ranger”, meet our awesome park ranger Steve. We hope to have a new park ranger in the region featured every 1-3 months so you can learn about what you have in common with a ranger, and the reasons we love our jobs and working for Oregon State Parks!
