IPD revamps “Gorge Rangers”

IPD revamps “Gorge Rangers”

The Ithaca Police Department is reminding the community and visitors to use caution when visiting the many gorges and waterways here in Ithaca.

With that in mind, the IPD is returning its Natural Areas Rangers program. The Rangers, commonly referred to as Gorge Rangers, patrol the natural areas within the City with a main focus on the gorges and trail-ways within.

The primary objective of the Rangers is to monitor and address behavior in the natural areas that is not in compliance with local, state and federal laws.

Underwater currents, unsteady terrain, and other unforeseeable dangers make the gorges and waterways dangerous if not enjoyed responsibly and lawfully.
