Three new online videos highlight
The final installment in an online video trilogy about the experience of young people in national parks was posted this week on “Denali: New Expeditions,” a podcast series available free on the park website, and iTunes.
“The future of national parks is in the young people of America,” Duncan said in an interview he recorded for the video. “When you're in a national park, you're in a sacred place, and you feel it. And it's almost impossible, I think, to walk away from that experience and not be moved by it, and not become a park champion, a park supporter and a park defender.”
Streaming versions of the three videos are embedded on the park website.
Complete versions are also available for free download as Quicktime video files through the “Denali: New Expeditions” storefront in iTunes.

Did You Know?
Nearly 500 vegetation plots have been installed in Denali, to monitor climate change. Warmer temperatures allow woody plants to grow at higher elevations, invading the fragile and unique plants already in high alpine tundra - and threatening the animals that depend on those specialized plants.
