702F19 Our National Parks
with Rebecca Burghart
Every American citizen is an owner of some of the most special places in this country — our national parks. These are places that awe, inspire and bring us to tears. They are places that make us feel both small and a part of something large. National parks represent the cultural fabric of our diverse nation and share the stories of “We the People.” This NPS Ranger talk will take us through the first century of our national parks during which the National Park Service grew from an idea to an international leader in conservation that now manages more than 420 different parks sites across the country.
