Olympic National Park welcomes new ranger

Posted

Scott Jacobs will be filling the role of chief ranger for Olympic National Park, the National Park Service announced Monday.

Jacobs joined Olympic National Park after serving as the national program manager for the Field Training and Evaluation Program at the park service’s Law Enforcement Training Center.

“Scott has been entrusted with the care of a national program, and ensuring rangers are thoroughly prepared to do their job at any park,” said Sarah Creachbaum, superintendent of Olympic National Park. “Scott’s leadership and expertise will be a great asset to the park and our local communities.”

Jacobs began his work with the National Park Service at Rocky Mountain National park as a seasonal visitor use assistant in the late 1990s. His prior stations include Boston National Historic Park, Big Bend National Park, Mesa Verde National Park, and Yosemite National Park.

“Olympic National Park is truly extraordinary,” Jacobs said. “I’m honored to be given the opportunity to join the park’s outstanding team and partners to support our shared mission to conserve the diverse ecosystems, dynamic landscapes, and awe-inspiring experiences of this special place.” 

Jacobs is relocating from coastal Georgia along with his wife and two children. In their free time Jacobs and his family enjoy outdoor activities, hiking, and spending time in national parks.
