What is BackCountryRangers.com?BackCountryRangers.com is a failed website from the dot.com era, trying to disseminate what all of these people on the planet are doing to wilderness and forest areas.
What is the origin of BackCountry Rangers?The idea of BackCountry Rangers was initially conceived with the thought of cleaning human trash and debris from wilderness areas. I did my first solo hike over the eastern crest of the Sierra Nevada, and at the summit I found over a dozen rusty tin cans stashed neatly between two rocks. I was appalled that someone could leave their trash for everyone else to experience. Therefore, the number one goal of the BackCountry Rangers is to restore wilderness and natural areas for our future and the creatures that call wilderness their home by removing the modern signs of man.
What can we do about ignorance today?Besides restoration of the physical land, we also need to restore our thought processes regarding how we treat nature and Earth. We need to once again respect our planet; it is the only place we have to live, and we certainly need to keep the Earth clean for the future. So, the second goal of the BackCountry Rangers is to educate people on earth processes attaining a better existence for us all.
Why don't the forms work?I guess I'm too lazy to reprogram them.
How can I report wilderness conditions?You can't, until I fix the forms.
How can I volunteer to restore the wilderness?Just do it. Go on a hike with a garbage bag and collect trash. Go to the beach and clean it up even if it's not an official clean up day. Be conscious of the pollution around you and do what you can to make less of it. Treat the entire planet as if it wasn't going to be here tomorrow.
What else can I find at the web site?Although the site is not finished (and it never will be), you can learn about edible plants of the Sierra Nevada at this time. Anyone who would like to submit other information to be included here, please email me. Or we could link our pages?
Who is the owner of this page?My name is Rick Moser. I am a hiker and a sailor and a person who just feels at ease in the wilderness. I have been exploring nature since I was a young boy. There is nothing I have done or loved as much in my life as going to places where fewer people have traveled.
Although I am not affiliated with any government organization, scouting groups, or nature clubs, I encourage the participation of these clubs and others to help clean up the wilderness.
My civilized life consists of residing in Ventura, California, while working in the entertainment industry.
