Miles Gurtler '06

Bureau of Land Management--Moab, Utah


Miles -GurtlerAt Earlham, what did you major in and in what kinds of activities were you involved?

I majored in geosciences but was heavily involved in the outdoor Ed program with two leader trips on August Wilderness and many many trips for the wellness program.

What did you do right after graduating from Earlham?

Moved to Utah to work for the park service at Canyonlands National Park. 

What are you doing now and what is awesome about it?!

I am the supervisory park ranger for the Bureau of Land Management in Moab Utah. I get to work everyday outside in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I care about the area and I get to work directly towards protecting it and assuring future generations can use their public lands. My field office is close to 2 million acres. It's a big job, maybe even too big at times but I enjoy it and feel like I'm doing something that matters.
