After graduating SUNY-ESF Ranger School in 1932, George Youngs was hired by the New York State Conservation Department as a Forest General Foreman. He served in this position from 1944 to 1948. From 1949 to 1971 he served as a District Ranger for the New York State Conservation Department for District #9 (now Region #5).
Most folders have retained their original order and titles. A few have been broken down into more descriptive categories. The collection consists largely of correspondence and printed materials collected by Youngs in his 39 years of service to the State of New York. The collection reflects the extensive training and wide-ranging responsibilities of a ranger from monitoring and treating invasive species to firefighting to public relations.
