Grateful for National Park Teen Ambassadors providing new perspectives: β€œI use to feel like it takes a lot of work to connect with the environment and to interact with it. It doesn’t take a lot to unplugged and just enjoy being outside. Also knowing that a lot of people put work and time in [p]reserving the environment have inspire me to try to do more.” #30DaysofGratitude #Voyageurs #nationalparkservice #npsyouth #VoyageursNationalPark πŸ“·: Christian Hedstrom, Wilderness Inquiry
Learning how to measure the trees diameter to estimate it’s age. How old do you think this tree in the Navy Yard is!? πŸ”πŸ“πŸ‘€ #trees #youth #getoutside #npsyouth

The Grander Church is undergoing stabilization efforts. An interesting fact is, high school and college students are also working with professional preservation craftspeople to learn skills and go on to study this craft. Three former students are now working for the NPS. #findyourpark #npscentennial #nps100 #nps #salinaspueblomissionsnationalmonument #ruins #pueblos #npsyouth #preservation #savingplaces @savingplaces @nationalparksigns @national_park_signs signs @outdoorproject #outdoorproject

I haven't accomplished anything yet, but still blessed to be able to give back and (fingers crossed) inspire or mentor the kids coming behind me. The North Cascades Youth Leadership Conference brings 60 youth (14-22) together and provides tools to build their awareness, learning, inspiration, and engagement in the outdoors while connecting them to networks and potential internships. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #youth β€’ #mentoring β€’ #leadership β€’ #npsyouth β€’ #ncascades β€’ #YLC2015 β€’ #NOCA β€’ #FindYourPark
