what kind of education would I need if I wanted to work at a national park?
I've graduated from high school and I don't like school very much. I've always wanted to work in the wilderness and on my career aptitude test it told me to be a park ranger, so I must be destined to work in the wild. What would I need to do to get a job at a national park?

Stop trying to find out what you need and just call and ask. If you don't have the necessary schooling, volunteer your time at a national park and decide if it's worth going to college for. If it is, go for it. But the only way you will know the requirements is by calling different parks and asking!
