I always dream of places that are pure, untouched, vibrant, and Wild. Places where you take a deep breath and simply feel alive. Even though it is not easy to get there and sometimes I feel like I'm in a bubble sitting in an office, my trip to Alaska put everything into perspective. I am truly so lucky to work for a federal agency that continues to work in protecting such sacred lands and important natural resources. Even though I am only a small contributor of such important work, because of the National Park Service we all have access to amazing places such as Denali. I am lucky to be apart of the NPS who houses such worldwide gems. I hope places like these continue to be untouchable forever. The outdoors are so important and I don't know what I would do if I were not able to take my dosage of wildflowers, clear streams, and mountains. So proud to be a part of that stewardship and I hope all members of our worldwide community can find a place in helping maintain our public lands for all to enjoy (especially our wildlife). 🐻🏔 • • #findyourpark #nps #parkrx #parkprescription #healthyparkshealthypeople #DOI #nationalparkservice #alaska #denalinationalpark #nationalpark #publiclands #getoutside #volunteerinparks #rei #forgetmenot #ak #mindfulness #mentalhealth #foresttherapy #troutfishing #flyfishing

"What keeps us coming back regularly to restore native habitat? Volunteers like 12 year old JayDe! At Tuesday’s Park Champions habitat restoration event in Fort Ord Dunes State Park, Jay De let slip that for his 12th birthday he wanted to do something to help the environment. So he scoured the internet for an event he could attend. When he saw that Park Champions was restoring habitat on his birthday, and that the minimum age was 12 years old, he immediately signed up with his mom to attend! JayDe shared this story while receiving an honorary Park Champions pin during our snack break. All of the volunteers attending, young and old, were impressed by Jay De’s commitment to the environment, and heartened by this young person’s enthusiasm and hard work. The prospects for our earth’s future health seem brighter knowing that there are committed young people like Jay De to protect it!"-John Salcido, Park Champions Core Leader #parkchampions #parkstewards #youthinparks #volunteerinparks
Why go on a #naturehike at #JewelCave ? You might get a chance to smell a ponderosa pine .... ahhhhhhh, love that vanilla scent. Thanks to #volunteerinparks host, Bobbi Jo Schmidt, for helping our youth #exploreanddiscover the outdoors. #JECA #nationalparkservice #midwestnps #southdakota #blackhills #hike #hiking #trail
Brighten up my afternoon with more volunteer gear! #NPS #volunteerinparks #history #newyork #museums #nyc
Volunteer Bree pets one of the mules that call Pinnacles home. Today, the volunteer activities included removing some invasive plants along Bacon Road, gathering flower seeds in Butterfield Canyon, and as a bonus, hanging out with the horse and mules on the way back. I've mentioned it before, but volunteering in the National Parks allows you to learn more and see more than you can just visiting. Even just a couple hours helps out and can be a great time. #pinnaclesnationalpark #volunteerinparks #pinnaclespartnership #optoutside #findyourpark

Love the reactions of passersby when one or more of my friends is dressed for the 18th century. One woman yesterday started looking down at her watch.. (What century is it?). 😊 #livinghistory #lindseyloveshistory #educationalprograms #alexanderhamilton #hamiltongrange #volunteerinparks #juniorrangerday #18thcentury #historicalphotography
Happy Earth Day! I spent the morning working with a group of volunteers at Pinnacles NP caging young valleys oaks to protect them from grazing herbivores like deer, gophers, etc. I had flashbacks to caging tomatoes when I was a kid. It was a great opportunity to explore an area of the park that is just starting to open up to visitors, and give back to the park. Volunteer days may allow you to explore an area of the park that you'd never visit or is usually off limits to visitors. #earthday #findyourpark #optoutside #pinnaclesnationalpark #volunteerinparks #nationalparkweek

Love my new name tags for the #NationalParkService ! Be sure to visit the parks New York has to offer (including but not excluding): Federal Hall National Memorial, Hamilton Grange, Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace, Castle Clinton, Grant's Tomb (and more!). #volunteerinparks #volunteer #nyc #manhattan #LindseyLovesHistory
So excited to start collecting stamps (at this point, not in a passport) from the National Park Service! This past weekend I visited #Yorktown , part of the #ColonialNationalPark . It was a trip to remember, as we couldn't attempt a driving tour around the battle site, as the fog was so dense you couldn't see over the hills! I also can't help to tell everyone I meet at NPS sites that I volunteer at #TheodoreRooseveltBirthplace and that my exhibit was #FederalHall this fall/winter! 🇺🇸❤️🗽😊 #fog #Virginia #NPS #volunteerinparks #AmericanRevolution #colonialhistory #AmericanHistory #stamps #npsstamps #nps100 #findyourpark #washingtonrochambeautrail #lindseyloveshistory #historytrips #travel #2ndVA #todaysDAR

The feature keeps getting deeper - and more mysterious! Our volunteer, Gyōrgyi, is hard at work scraping away toward the bottom of the feature. This season is coming close to an end, but we always welcome volunteers at the park.
