Jen Epstein

Jen went all out to provide creative, engaging and empowering experiences for my high school students, not just on field trips but through curriculum enhancements and helping a group of high school history buffs start an after school club. In all kinds of weather, weekend after weekend, she worked with the students to develop their skills as well as fostering a sense of belonging and ownership in our national parks. She taught me so much about being an impactful educator along the way. She is as much of a treasure as the parks themselves!

Yellowstone Team

I visited Yellowstone for the first time this summer. I was in charge of several protected areas in central Africa during my career, so I can really appreciate the work the team has done in Yellowstone. Impressive. So simply my appreciation for a job well done.


Gretchen greeted us on the patio outside the Needles area visitor center on Sunday, October 17th and helped us with hiking recommendations. I figure she probably does that a lot, but rarely hears back from those visitors she sends off onto various trails. Our Chester Park Loop hike was AMAZING. It was absolutely perfect for what we were after, and it couldn’t have been a more perfect day. Thank you so much!!!

Karen Arey

Thank you Karen Arey for all that you do to keep our national park transportation running smoothly. From landscaping to road and bridge restoration, your work experience has helped maintain passage ways in and around our national parks for everyone to enjoy. Great job! 👍🏽


Thank you, national park ambassadors, for all that you do each and everyday to protect and preserve our favorite places!

Scott Gedimen

I want to say a big thank you to Scott Gediman at Yosemite National Park. I had the chance to hike to Mirror Lake with a group that Scott led once and it was a really amazing experience. It helped me fall in love with that magical place! Thanks for all that you do!
