This short summary of the attributes sought of park rangers is orientated towards those considering a career as a ranger. It was authored by park ranger Patrick Fricker of Yarra Valley Metropolitan Park, Melbourne, at the time Manager Environment and Tourism, Yarra Area Parks. The two pages of handwritten notes are in his writing but the editorial annotations are in the handwriting of Trevor Arthur.


Appended are several pages with a syllabus for an Advanced Certificate and Associate Diploma, but their provenance and relationship to Mr Fricker’s notes are unclear.
