Have you noticed the National Park Service Find Your Park campaign?
There is a park for everyone, is what the National Park Service wants you to know with the Find Your Park campaign. But don’t assume parks are only wilderness or wooded parks. If that were the case, not everyone would find their park.
Many people are finding their park in Washington D. C. in the form of monuments, historic sites, parkways, and even the White House. The National Park Service has a large presence in our nation’s capital.
Philip Selleck, Associate Region Director of the National Park Service Capital Region, joins the Park Leaders Show to discuss the urban parks of Washington D.C. Phil will talk about the challenges of operating parks that see a large volume of traffic that experience shorter visits.
Phil also discusses promoting through the ranks of the National Park Service. From seasonal park ranger to chief ranger, Phil offers advice on what it takes to get promoted.
