Lindsey Taylor helped bridge the gap between park research studies and public education in Denali National Park by creating and updating digital education exhibits that bring current research findings to public visitors. Lindsey collaborated with education staff from the Murie Science and Learning Center (MSLC), park scientists, and a park media team to create NPS web pages of Denali’s incredible biological, cultural, and physical research findings. She also updated the MSLC climate change exhibit and a new digital exhibit by contributing written content, collecting/ taking photographs, and designing the exhibit. The combination of the Denali science research web pages and updated exhibits developed by Lindsey will continue to increase the public’s knowledge about these research projects and grow support for other necessary studies.
