Have you ever attended a program in a National Park, National Monument or other natural or historic area?
Whether is it is a guided walk, a campfire program, or an indoor presentation, the knowledge and insight of the rangers is phenomenal. These are people who love what they do, love their subject, and love sharing it with visitors.
This is Ranger Bob, telling
us about climbing on Denali--Mt. McKinley.
(This is not one you can do as a guided walk.)
The ranger at Mt. St. Helens held his audience in rapt attention as he told about the return of wildlife after the eruption of 1980.
Skagway Alaska, the Yukon Gold Rush National Historic Park ranger below relishes the history that he describes. (He looks like he would have been right at home with the prospectors.)
Take advantage of these national treasures when you visit our parks and historic sites. You will be glad you did.
