What is a B.A.R.K. Ranger? 

The National Park Service’s B.A.R.K. Ranger program invites owners and pets to serve as ambassadors for responsible and safe pet handling at Gateway Arch National Park and other national parks across the country. 

B.A.R.K. stands for:

  • Bag your pet’s waste
  • Always leash your pet
  • Respect wildlife
  • Know where you can go

Owners can sign their pets up to be B.A.R.K. Rangers throughout the year at Gateway Arch National Park. 

Please contact Meagan Patterson at to learn more about becoming the owner of a B.A.R.K. Ranger.
