Ranger of the Year

NFRA’s ‘Ranger of the Year’ Award has been presented annually since 1982 to individuals who show personal dedication in the realm of recreation management, and exhibit a true sense of partnership with recreation service providers. “We want to recognize those employees who understand the important role of partners, and who show exemplary efforts to work together,” states NFRA President Steve Werner.  “We are continually amazed at how much it means to our honorees to receive this recognition, and it is a highlight of our Conference.”

The 2018 Conference will host an awards luncheon to honor the ‘Ranger of the Year’ – which is always an enjoyable event. 

We are very pleased to announce that the ‘2018 Ranger of the Year’ is Brian Poturalski from the Coconino National Forest.  

Congratulations, Brian and we will see you at the Awards Luncheon at the Conference.
