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, Shelton.Thank you, Shelton, for your warm personality and your fascinating stories about the Buffalo Soldiers and their significant work and presence in Yosemite. I walked with you a few years ago and still remember what a delightful experience that was.

Thank you, All NPS Ambassadors .It was several years ago that I went to Bryce, which had been a goal since i was a teenager, and thanks to the excellent help and advice from the Rangers on duty, we had a fantastic hike among the Hoodoos and saw a great sunrise over the Park. It is my favorite park because of the good experience I had there. Thank You, thank you!

Thank you, C.O. & Fortress Staff.Hello: I want to thank the entire staff @ Castillo San Marcus for excellent customer service!!!! Two years ago, I spent two weeks in St. Augustine, FL. I was given a National Park pass, since I was a Veteran. This pass is good @ all Natl Parks, & will save you on entry fees. I visited the Fortress everyday, & photographed all of the Spanish bronze cannons. The Park staff, rangers, are very helpful & take extra care in the safety of all the visitors. I informed a volunteer, of a 24 lb bronze cannon on top deck, that was on shipboard. The area behind the touch hole, was ground flat. This was to mount a very large brass flintlock firing lock. Their were four screw holes to hold the lock in place. While checking out the moat, I observed a carved inscription, 15? feet up on the south curtain wall. I reported this to a ranger, & hoping they were able to find it ???? The live cannon firing is great to watch. The gift shop staff are also very helpful & have a lot of books, & little brass cannons, mounted on cast iron carriages @ a good price. The toy cannons make great paper weights. After we get this virus under control, I plan on another trip to the Fortress. Thank you all. Best/Wishes Charles Duane Romero Perris, Calif.
