Rosanne McHenry

Rosanne S. McHenry is a local author from Auburn, California. She has worked as a National Park Ranger and a CA State Park Ranger in many different places over the years, including the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Mt. Rainier National Park, Auburn State Recreation Area, Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park in Coloma, The California State Railroad Museum, Sutter’s Fort, the California State Indian Museum, Hearst Castle, and Death Valley National Park, among others.

Her time spent on family camping trips as a child gave her a tremendous love for the outdoors, as well as a deep understanding of how important it is to protect our natural resources. Trip Tales: From Family Camping to Life as a Ranger talks about how these experiences shaped her decision to become a park ranger, and about her first assignments working for the U.S. National Park Service in California and Washington.

Roseanne’s second book is entitled Tales from a Rogue Ranger. You can read more about this book on her website. 

“Being a park ranger gave me a unique opportunity to talk to people about our natural world, and to instill a deep sense of stewardship in each person I met. This beautiful planet, our Earth, is our shared heritage and we all play an important role in protecting it.”
