Wanakena, NY, Aug 02, 2012 — The Ranger School in Wanakena celebrates its centennial this year. Since 1912, the school has been a regional campus of the New York State College of Forestry in Syracuse. It's the oldest forest technology school in the country. The centennial celebration officially kicks off this weekend with music, food and alumni gatherings. And a new book, published as part of its centennial, includes the history of the school along with alumni essays and photos.
Todd Moe talks with the school's director, Christopher Westbrook and Brad Woodward, chair of the centennial committee about the book, The Ranger School: A Century in the Forest, and the school's history of training forest rangers in the Adirondacks.
