Ranger Climate Communication Toolkits

Ranger Toolkits are a great resource to help park rangers become more confident in talking to visitors about climate change. Important parts of a Ranger Toolkit include brief explanations of climate change and its impacts, pro-climate actions that rangers can tell visitors to take, and a list of frequently asked questions so that rangers have the answers at the ready during visitor interactions.
