National Park Ambassadors

They maintain habitats, educate visitors, and preserve history. They're rangers, museum curators, engineers, volunteers, landscape architects, and fire fighters. They're the treasured stewards of our national parks. They're National Park Ambassadors.

Behind every national park is a team of ordinary people who are dedicated to maintaining the extraordinary. They may not wear capes, but they're heroes in our book. Meet the individuals who protect our parks and send thanks to an NPS employee or volunteer who made your last visit extra special.

Thank you, Rangers at Washington Monument.Big thanks to the rangers working at the Washington Monument! You were all so friendly and helpful to not only those who had reservations to ride to the top of the monument, but those trickling by with questions about the Mall and making reservations for the monument. You were all very knowledgeable and lovely!

Thank you, Miles Barger.Dear Miles, It has been beautiful to see your devotion to and love for RMNP as its Visual Information Director the past 5 years. From the moment you first went there, the hikes and adventures you've taken me on as you've shared the park with me have been memories I will cherish for all my days. The newspapers, brochures, waysides, videos and more that you have produced for the park have informed me and made me proud of your creativity and desire for excellence. From your days as a summer employee at Yellowstone thru Black Canyon, Harpers Ferry, Denali, and soon back to Yellowstone, your work with the national park service has enriched my life as well as yours. Thank you, Miles.
