How does someone become a park ranger?
The first step is to sign up for and take the Suffolk County Civil Service Park Ranger exam. A list of exams and dates can be found on the Civil Service website. Once you take the exam you will be placed on an eligibility list, which is sorted by score. All towns must hire full time park rangers from this list.
