Senior Max Bearak (Pelham, N.Y.) authored a post for the New York Times "Green" blog, recapping his experience as a wilderness ranger in Nevada's Humboldt National Forest this summer. His main focus was mapping the unexplored areas of Humboldt NF. He secured the position through the Student Conservation Association, which places successful applicants into about 4,200 positions each year. "I’m already longing to return to the wilderness as my classes begin," he writes at the end of this post. "Something out West really beckoned to me, and following that call is a decision I’ll never regret."
