The International Ranger Federation’s 8th World Ranger Congress will be held at Estes Park, Colorado, USA May 21 – 27, 2016. 

The International Ranger Federation (IRF) raises awareness of and supports park rangers worldwide in conserving our natural and cultural heritage. ​Every three years, the IRF brings together rangers from around the globe to renew their commitment to preserving and protecting the world’s natural and cultural resources.

These international gatherings provide rangers and protected area professionals the opportunity to learn new skills, share knowledge, create lasting partnerships, and be inspired by their colleagues. Delegates also learn how to increase public awareness about how these special places contribute to a healthy society and sustainable economies.


The upcoming 8th World Ranger Congress in Estes Park, Colorado USA will focus on the idea of connecting parks, rangers and communities.
