Paradise, Calif. – Congratulations are in order for the newest members of the California State Parks system. 29 new cadets have been recognized and sworn-in during a graduation ceremony in Paradise.

The cadets will serve as rangers and lifeguards in what is the nation’s largest park system.

For the past eight months, the cadets took part in basic visitor service training in order to prepare them to serve in the parks and to assist in educating visitors to California’s State Parks.

The training is also to protect natural and cultural resources of the parks.

Two members of the graduating class hail from the North State region. Ranger Sabrina Buis will now serve in the Northern Buttes District. She has previously worked as a lifeguard at Lake Oroville and is also a volunteer for Butte County’s Search and Rescue.

A Paradise native and graduate of Chico State University, Ranger Megan Sanchez will serve in the San Luis Reservoir State Recreation Area.

Rangers from this graduating class will be stationed at 18 park units throughout the state. In the role of peace officer, the rangers also have the authority to make physical arrest, conduct investigations and perform search and rescue activities.

The next step for the rangers will be to complete the Field Training Officer’s Program, which consists of 13 additional weeks of on-the-job training.

The California State Parks agency recently launched a new recruitment effort encouraging people to, “Life the Parks Life” and experience the adventure, excitement and beauty by working within the nation’s largest park system.

You can learn more about the department and current recruiting efforts for the next cadet program.

Tuesday was another beautiful day for northern California as a cold front began to bear down on the West Coast. We can expect increasing clouds late tonight, stronger breezes, and a chance for mountain rain and snow showers.
