Over the past two weeks Palo Alto Battlefield NHP was transformed into a mini recording studio as Cadette Girl Scouts completed their MEdia Journey. These young reporters toured the park and interviewed a variety of park rangers. The Scouts producers then wrote scripts, filmed shots, edited, and produced a promo video. Sandra MacGarrough, a teacher in the Teacher-Ranger-Teacher program, was their director throughout their Journey.
