Streiff retires as DEC head regional forest ranger
RAY BROOK — On a rainy Friday morning at the state Department of Environmental Conservation Region 5 headquarters, Assemblyman Billy Jones (D-Chateaugay Lake) presented Capt. John Streiff with an Assembly Citation recognizing his many years of dedicated service as the head regional forest ranger.
Streiff retired after a 37-year career as a forest ranger, including directing search-and-rescue missions.
“This is an honor of many, many honors,” said Streiff in the DEC parking lot where many friends and colleagues had gathered, with a trunk full of doughnuts and coffee, to pay respects. He thanked those gathered, who had helped him in his long career in “keeping the North Country safe and protecting its natural resources.”
