Prophets and Moguls, Rangers and Rogues, Bison and Bears: 100 years of the National Park Service
Join journalist and former park ranger, Heather Hansen, to hear the story of the National Park Service (NPS) — a story of the people who fought to protect the places that help define our national identity. The nation’s pars are those places we all now hold dear—from the hazy blue mist that hangs over the Great Smoky Mountains to the spouting geysers of Yellowstone to the steamy, sinuous waterways of the Everglades.
Have you been a visitor to one of the parks in our National Park Service? Join us as Heather Hansen, an award-winning author, shares her story about its history — the story of those whose foresight created the places we each make part of our own natural histories.
