Over the last few years, the animal-loving, conservation-supporting octogenarian has risen to fame once again and taken on the role of America’s sweetheart. This week, however, White took on yet another title: Honorary Forest Ranger.
On Tuesday, The Forest Service presented White with a forest ranger badge and hat during a ceremony at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.
“Wilderness is harder and harder to find these days on this beautiful planet, and we’re abusing our planet to the point of almost no return,” White said. “In my heart I’ve been a forest ranger all my life, but now I’m official.”
