Women of the National Park Service

NPS History is Women's History!

Women have a long history with the National Park Service. We have come a long way from the early years of the NPS when women were excluded from service, or relegated to "appropriate" jobs. Now, women can be found serving in jobs across the NPS, from working directly with the public, doing research out in the field, and behind the scenes.

We hope you enjoy this collection of stories introducing you to a few of the Women of the National Park Service.
