Teaching forestry since its first bloom

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.
