The Logan Honorary Park Rangers Association is a group of volunteers who assist Logan City Council's full time Rangers.
Honorary Park Rangers work in Logan Urban and Bushland Parks, monitoring park usage, reporting illegal use and educating public on the appropriate use of Logan's parks.
Honorary Park Rangers were formed with the purpose of sharing information and discussing common problems in parks with Council Rangers, offering input and recommendations to the ongoing management of parks.
The association meets 4 times a year, to put forward ideas and receive information relating to parks within Logan. Often a guest speaker may be invited to our meetings to talk on various topics relating to our environment.
Anyone can be involved with the Honorary Park Rangers association, if you are over 18 years old and have no previous criminal convictions and are able to obtain a working with children blue card. If your application is successful you will automatically become a Member of the Association.
