“Ranger retires at 100”
The National Park Service announced the organization’s oldest active ranger has retired at age 100 in California.
Betty Reid Soskin, who has served as a ranger at a park in Richmond for more than a decade and a half, officially retired last Thursday.
Soskin celebrated her 100th birthday in September 2021.
She took a temporary position working with the NPS at age 84 and became a permanent employee in 2011, making her the oldest active National Parks ranger in the United States.
Her work included programs to highlight the history of Black Americans and other people of color.
“The National Park Service is grateful to Ranger Betty for sharing her thoughts and first-person accounts in ways that span across generations,” said Naomi Torres, acting superintendent of the Park.
