Day in the Life: Park Ranger
Matt Balas and Sam Phillips, park rangers with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District, walk to their boat to start their patrol at Youghiogheny River Lake in Confluence, Pennsylvania, July 15, 2022. “You can be on a boat inspecting docks one minute and then next minute you could be doing a safety stop with someone blowing a no-wake zone and giving them a water safety education lesson to ensure they understand the rules and regulations of the lake. Nothing about this job is stagnant,” Balas said. (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District photo by Michel Sauret)
