Report – 05 Guarding the Park.

Report of the Superintendent of the Crater Lake National Park, 1910

 Guarding the Park.

The many duties and contingencies constantly arising along the line of the work of park ranger made it impossible to maintain a sufficient guard over the park with the very inadequate force of one ranger. There should be at the least one permanent park ranger and two temporary rangers to remain on duty from July 1 to September 30 of each year; and, in addition, I recommend that at least one company of soldiers be detailed to duty in this park, to the end that outposts may be established along the lines of the reserve in the more remote sections, the men to act as scouts, game wardens, and fire guards and to do general ranger duty.
