Truly a national treasure

By Nancy
February 5, 2013

Our daughter, after having a great experience with the Student Conservation Association (SCA) in Alaska where we were fortunate enough to visit her, applied to work as a seasonal park ranger. She has since worked at several national parks where we again have visited her, including Rocky Mountain, Carlsbad and Independence Hall in Philadelphia. It has opened up a new world to us! Through her and her boyfriend who also works at a park, we understand how financially strapped the parks are. Our niece and her husband also work at Zion. There are less and less rangers, and, it seems, even less permanent rangers hired. Our daughter may no longer be able to work at a park because of this, and has no health insurance as a part time ranger. We are trying to give the parks a bit of support, and we hope others do as well! We hope the government also will support these beautiful parks, monuments, and historical sights!
