National Parks Traveler’s May Webinar: An Independent National Park Service

If you didn’t have the opportunity to sign up for the National Parks Traveler’s first-ever monthly webinar back in April, you now have the chance to sign up for the May webinar. This one features Jonathan and Destry Jarvis, brothers who have been fighting for the national parks for 50 years. You may remember Jonathan Jarvis as the 18th National Park Service Director during the Obama administration. They discuss why they are advocating for a National Park Service “freed from the Department of the Interior” and set up as an independent government agency similar to the Smithsonian. They also discuss the upcoming release of their new book.
