What can you discover in the National Parks?

There is much to discover in the National Park Service, both within the parks and within ourselves. People have been discovering new places and experiences in the parks for over a hundred years. The National Park Service is made up of 424 sites across the United States each with their own unique significance. These places each tell different stories about nature, history, culture, conflict, wilderness, inspiration, majesty, and solitude. These parks have a wide variety of experiences for people to discover within each. For example, within the various park sites just in Utah, visitors can hike sandstone cliffs, marvel at dinosaur bones, learn about the transcontinental railroad, walk under natural arches, trek through caves or even paddle down amazing rivers.

Fun fact, there is at least one national park site in every state. This means that many people actually live close to a park and often times don’t even know it. These parks sites can include amazing islands, historic homes, giant forests, cool canyons, significant memorials, illuminating lighthouses, famous battlefields, or even extraordinary mountains to name a few. So, if you are planning a trip to visit a National Park, don’t just look to famous parks like Zion or Yosemite. Try looking for other parks either less well known or closer to home as well. You may be surprised at what you discover.

Before Fort George was Fort Clatsop!

Yesterday, Ranger Esther stepped up to the bar to make candles with Pacific Ridge fourth graders. Over the next two months Lewis and Clark education staff will be making over 480 candles with 240 fourth graders from our local schools. The new "bar" was created by our facilities team using spruce rounds from a hazard tree.

Sorry no IPA served at this bar, only tallow.

Chilkoot Trail Has Limited Hiking Opportunities in 2023

Hiking is a prime form of recreation in Alaska and the Chilkoot Trail, near Skagway, is one of the more challenging hikes. The Chilkoot Trail, is an international trail that traverses Alaska and British Columbia for about 33 miles, half in Alaska, and half in British Columbia. The Alaskan portion of the trail, which is a unit of Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, was recently designated as Chilkoot National Historic Trail. Enthusiastic hikers will have a chance to traverse the entire trail, but not until 2024.

Flooding caused extensive trail damage on the U.S. side in October of 2022. National Park Service employees are working on repairing the damage and may have certain sections open this summer, but through hiking of the entire 33 miles of trail will not be available until May of 2024. Also, no overnight camping will be allowed on the U.S. side this summer. Alternative hiking opportunities are available at the Dyea Historic Townsite and the Slide Cemetery.

On Monday, April 24th, Parks Canada will open the Reservation Line for hiking and camping on the Canadian side only (1-800-661-0486 Canada and U.S./ 1-867-667-3910 local and overseas). A backcountry permit is required.

Those hiking any portions of the trail should carry bear spray as bears are frequently seen along the trail. Avoid hiking alone, watch for weather conditions, and keep pets on a leash. Portions of the trail are steep, so plan appropriately.

From June through September, a trail orientation will still be available at the Trail Center which is located between 5th and 6th Streets on Broadway in Skagway. For more information, visit the park’s website at www.nps.gov/klgo.

Today's theme for is , and I'd like to share .

My name is Fiona O'Kelly, and I have been an Interpretive ranger here at Point Reyes National Seashore for the last six years, on the traditional homelands of Coast Miwok people. I've been a part of the community in West Marin for twenty years now since I first moved here permanently to work as an environmental educator for the Point Reyes National Seashore Association, running a nature & science-based summer camp and school program.

My career in environmental and outdoor education first began back in the mid-90s and led me to work with countless passionate educators who taught me about California native plants and animals, different habitats, and creative and fun activities to share all of these things with students.

I am grateful every day to have built a career out of sharing my love of nature and Point Reyes with countless visitors who pass through from all over the United States and from around the world. I'm grateful for the kids that I taught many years ago coming back and telling me that the deep connections they made here in Point Reyes have led them to continuing exploring the natural world and striving to protect it. I am grateful for my National Park Service co-workers who continue to mentor and inspire me. And I have so much gratitude for the wonderful people in this community of West Marin who share my love of this place.

This week's volunteer spotlight is on VIP Nettie! Nettie's main duties are working at the map in the Painted Desert Visitor Center, roving the park, and greeting and assisting visitors when needed. Nettie has been at Petrified Forest for 4 months and she previously volunteered at Grand Canyon National Park for 5 years. She has accumulated 5,000+ volunteer hours! Nettie chose to volunteer at Petrified Forest because she has always wanted to work at the park. She chooses to volunteer because she loves learning new things and working with the staff and visitors. Thank you, Nettie! (kd)

Thanks to the help of wildlife biologist Makenzie Henk, the Conservancy's search for the elusive Catalina Island shrew is speeding into the future. Using artificial intelligence software, Makenzie is able to sort through hundreds of thousands of photos and prioritize those with small mammals (shrews and mice). This year the wildlife crew has already reviewed over 90,000 photos!

The first Monday in September is set aside to honor American workers and champion the ideals set forth by legions of workers’ rights advocates and the sacrifices they made to get us where we are today. The labor movement gave us the 40-hour work week, weekends, minimum wage, and so much more. Our journey continues today toward an equitable society for all. So be sure to thank those workers’ rights advocates of yesterday and consider what you can do to advance workers’ rights moving forward.
Labor Day also marks a shift in the schedule here at Bryce Canyon - we will no longer offer evening programs or astronomy events this season. We will continue to offer daily geology talks at 11am at Sunset Point. Hope to see you there!

We all love the idea of being at one with nature, and camping can be the perfect opportunity for this. Drive to a remote location, set up your tent, and settle down to watch the sunset with your loved one, sipping on a cold drink and tucking into some smores. But oftentimes, the reality can look ver...
