Dare to Imagine...

These stories are part of the Dare to Imagine project, an Innovation and Impact grant funded by the National Park Foundation through their
Women In Parks initiative. This grant supports projects and programs that help the National Park Service share a more comprehensive American narrative. This narrative includes the voices of women whose vision, tenacity, and resilience moved them to climb mountains, take down barriers, shape history, protect the environment, and lead social movements.
