FREEHOLD, NJ – The Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners is pleased to announce that a resolution was passed proclaiming July 31, 2023 as World Ranger Day during the Commissioner Meeting on July 27.

“World Ranger Day is celebrated around the world on July 31 to commemorate rangers who have been killed or injured in the line of duty,” said Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone. “With this proclamation, the Board honors the work rangers do to protect Earth’s natural treasures and cultural heritage. We thank our Monmouth County Park System Park Rangers for the outstanding effort they put forth every day to help make our Park System the finest in New Jersey.”

“One of my favorite activities as the liaison to the Park System is getting to speak with our Park Rangers about their role in preserving and protecting our beautiful parks throughout the County,” said Commissioner Ross F. Licitra, liaison to the Monmouth County Park System. “Park rangers not only protect our parks but also the patrons who visit our parks throughout the year. I want to thank them for their hard work and dedication to keeping our parks and our visitors safe.”
