Allison & Taylor

Your passion for your positions with the National Park Service at Acadia National Park were quite evident when my husband and I were there in early October. We actually crossed paths with you along the Shore Path one evening. You were very kind and very enthusiastic about your service as rangers. We learned a great deal from both of you. We could hear in your voice and your words YOUR personal commitment to how you each serve the public and help us understand what great resources we have in all the national parks.


I wish to thank ALL of the hard working men and women park rangers across the country for their efforts in maintaining our precious wild lands and service to visitors in the parks.


The national parks are a vital resource for the environment as well as for the people and wildlife in the US. They obviously need people to work in them and your efforts are appreciated.

All rangers, and Especially Ranger Nicole at Glacier Bay

Every national park ranger my wife and I have ever encountered has been friendly, courteous, and helpful, but we want to especially thank Ranger Nicole at Glacier Bay. We were there in 2016 for our 25th anniversary, and Ranger Nicole was particularly friendly, helpful, and welcoming. She was wonderfully passionate about the park and her work, and profoundly knowledgeable regarding every variety of wildlife and natural phenomena that we encountered. Inspiring. A joy to spend time with. Can't say enough about how wonderful she was.


As someone who is enchanted by our National Parks, I want to say thank you for all you do to protect our wildlife and care for our precious parks. In increasingly challenging times such as these, your dedication is appreciated. Watching #399 and the cubs has been a great past time to many of us and the extra efforts to protect them from humans has been appreciated from afar.
