Virtual Conference

Written by
This week was the LHIP virtual conference. Sitting for hours on hours on end was not easy, but the topics in discussion and guest speakers made it all the easier. This conference had different feelings and emotions associated with it, and I am glad I was able to experience this opportunity.

 Spend a day in the field with an endangered coho salmon monitoring team at Point Reyes and you’ll meet a group of people motivated by a love for nature, for whom trudging through a cold river and lugging around equipment only to get their hands covered in fish slime is nothing short of a privilege.

As an interpretation and outreach assistant, I’m working with visitors at the park to explain the geology, paleontology, and history of Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, FLFO in an engaging and understandable way. While teleworking, I search for ideas I can use for Latino outreach on behalf of the park. In my next post, I will describe in detail what types of projects I’m currently working on. First, I want to focus on what interpretation…

Come Meet Wupatki!

Written by
As I’m finishing my third week of my internship, I have learned a lot about Wupatki and everything it has to offer. I’ve spent a lot of time roaming the trails by myself to get acquainted with everything, so that I’ll be ready to answer any visitor’s question at any moment! I thought this would be a great time to summarize the main pueblos I've learned about since I've been here, and hopefully it will…

My Second Week on Fire Island!

Written by
Fire Island has been everything I dreamed of and more! It’s only been my second week here and I love it so much already. On my first week I was able to meet most of my coworkers and roommate for the season and travel around the island to see the multiple visitor centers. Everyone was so welcoming, so it made the adjustment much easier. My days were filled with orientation reading, getting to know my…

Hi all! I am back with another Venezuelan recipe because my creative writing brain just won’t seem to do anything and well because I am always hungry.

Getting Away from the Chaos

Written by
In nature, we connect with ourselves. The crowded cities and urban chaos often cloud our inner peace. Although we are in the midst of a pandemic and fighting against social injustices, we must reset, take a breath of fresh air, and enjoy the sun on our skin. We are alive, and we are human. Whether you are at home, out exploring your park or the outdoors, you matter and what you do matters. Your story…

¡Sí Se Puede!

Written by
The first half of my internship involved training, operations, reading books and articles, brainstorming, creating a plan, and being mentored through conversation. I don’t mind being behind the scenes. In fact I enjoy doing research and independent work.

A Healing Conversation with John Golda

I was very nervous as my second week approached and I was invited to get a tour of the nearby town by the Interpretive team's Operations Manager, John Golda. John Golda is essentially the supervisor of my supervisor. I was nervous because of my previous experience with people in leadership…
