Superintendent F. Gus Sanchez and staff are excited to host Songs and Stories of Our National Parks in celebration of the second century of the National Park Service and more than 100 years of conservation and sharing America’s stories. This free evening of music and memories is scheduled for Friday, July 7th at 7:00 pm in the Theater at Chamizal National Memorial.
National parks are best known for wildlife and scenery, but the reasons parks matter go far beyond the tangible. From Yellowstone to Hawai’i Volcanoes, Gettysburg to Guadalupe Mountains, national parks are powerful places that impact people in extraordinary ways. Through music and storytelling, Rangers Megan Davenport and Gary Bremen share deeply personal experiences from national parks across the country. They take participants through a full range of emotions, leaving audiences uplifted, proud, and looking forward to creating their own memories in their national parks.
In partnership with White Sands National Monument, Guadalupe Mountains National Park, and Western National Parks Association, Songs and Stories of Our National Parks will also be presented at White Sands National Monument on July 8 at 8:30 pm and at Guadalupe Mountains National Park on July 9 at 1:00 pm. These programs are free; entrance fees apply at Guadalupe Mountains National Park.
