Building friends groups and partnerships is essential for a modern park. Krista Muddle from the National Park Service joins the Park Leaders Show to discuss partnerships.
Krista Muddle is a Regional Partnership Coordinator at Intermountain Region Office with the National Park Service.
Krista divides her time between a program working in partnership with Mexico on border-related issues and working with parks developing partnerships in their community. Broder related issues range from animals that are found in both countries, vegetation management, and sand dune studies.
Whether your park has already formed local partnerships, or are just getting started, Krista shares information of what makes a successful partnership. This episode will give you ideas of why you need partnerships and way friends groups can help your park get more done.
Friends Groups serve as an Ambassador for the park and a direct link to connect the park to the community and connect the community to the park.
