A Sense of Place

The podcast “A Sense of Place: Stories of Stewardship from the National Park Service” introduces you to the people who take care of America’s parks. You’ll meet search and rescue rangers. A wilderness manager who called Yosemite National Park home. A cartographer and a writer whose maps and brochures guide visitors.

You’ll see parks in new ways. As experiments in social reform. As places where interpretive rangers and visitors contemplate big ideas. As spaces where the National Park Service aspires to hire a diverse and inclusive workforce. Each episode dives into the Park History Program’s rich oral history archives to find stories that are moving, funny, and wise. Come join us.
