Welcome to the Everglades!

Written by
Summer at Everglades National Park is an experience unlike any other in the United States. Summer storms bring heavy rainfall leading to higher water levels and as a result, sawgrass prairies and freshwater sloughs thrive once again. This seasonal change makes for spectacular views of the Everglades ecosystem as well as a prime opportunity to learn about how this wetland sustains life. As a Cultural History Education LHIP Intern at Everglades National Park, I am…

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

Written by
Skagway is a constantly changing town. The ambiance is very much influenced by the crowds that come off the cruise ships. Each day is a new adventure and new chance to help people discover something new. Though KLGO is the most visited national park in Alaska, I learned quickly that most people are unaware that it exists. Often, people are thrilled with the prospect of accidentally stumbling upon a national park, but every so often…

Colombian Independence Day

They're connection to Colombia, much like my own, is passed on from their parents. Some may go and visit, others may not; but regardless, that does not diminish the feeling of belonging to two places at once. Lowell does a good job of suggesting that this split does not make an     the relci

New Places, Old Friends

Written by
I love Colorado! And this past week I think me and my friends said that almost everyday. This week I was lucky enough to have my friends from Texas come up to Colorado to visit me! I took a few extra days off and we stayed at an airbnb in Boulder and it was beautiful. Even just driving through Colorado is breathtaking; the mountains, the sparse houses deep in the woods, the sky, the thick…

Observations I've Made

Written by
Hola, I am very grateful that programs like LHIP exists to directly make a change in the kinds of people who work in NPS positions, even if it's temporary. This isn't a solution to the lack of diversity but it definitely does more good than not. With that said I just wanted to talk about some things that I've thought about in my time here at White Sands.

Now Walk It Out, Now Walk It Out

Written by
I've never really been good at goodbye's so writing my last and final blog post is a bit difficult for me. How do you sum up something that has been so influential and life changing into one goodbye? The real answer is, you don't. I can make this blog post super cliché and long but I have decided to keep it short, simple and straight forward. This summer has been an absolute blast! I've gotten…

¿Y Cuando Regresas?

Written by
The Latino Heritage Internship Program conference in Denver has left me with a new found inspiration and energy that I took with me to Portland, Oregon. I found a community amongst interns who understand where I come from. I had the best of time and now that I am back at the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park I feel like I can finish this internship with a bang. I received exciting news from my…

Remembering Sandy

Written by
Hello Everyone! It has been a few weeks since my previous blog post and this one is a bit different. This post is dedicated to the fifth year anniversary since Hurricane Sandy. Hurricane Sandy hit New York on October 29th, 2012. I remember sitting in the living room with my family attempting to study as the world outside was in chaos. The days following Sandy felt surreal. Countless neighborhoods were flooded, trees and power lines…

The NOLA experience

Written by
Hello Everyone my name is Jonatan Sanabria. To start off I was born in Washington in a little area called Brewster. I was born to an immigrant family that came from Mexico on their own at a young age to seek a better life. After the age of 2 my family moved to Colorado where I spent my entire 17 years in. I also went through the KIPP program that helps certain underprivileged communities succeed.…
