Stewardship is the intersection between three key principles: Understand, Assess, and Apply. These principles are an approach to applying resource management. Imagine being in charge of all resources (cultural, wildlife, vegetation, and physical sciences) in an area of nearly 800 thousand acres that is all...

The past couple of weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of tracking tortoises with one of the park’s volunteers, Tom. Tom is retired from a long career in the forest service and he is an amazing naturalist. Being out in the field with a naturalist is...

Richardson Bay Audubon Center and Sanctuary

To kick off Latino Conservation Week I was able to join an event at the Richardson Bay Audubon Center and Sanctuary on July 12. The Audubon Center organized a camp night at their location in Tiburon...

The past month has been both very challenging and rewarding. Most of my projects throughout the course of my internship were lined up for mid-July, and so I've been able to do a large variety of things. 

For Latino Conservation Week, I set up a bilingual...

For large parts of the past two weeks I have been dedicating my time researching my project by reading primary and secondary source books and documents ranging from the early 19th century up until more recent scholarship from 2016. I have also been going back...

Wow, time flies by when you're having fun! Sadly, my time here at the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical park is coming to end, but I won't stop working on projects until my last hour here. As part of my final project, I thought it...

What’s going on everyone! I hope everyone reading this is having an amazing day. A recap on my week. The KLGO had Susan Bonfield come visit the park. She is the Director of Environment for the Americas. She came to one of my historical and...

What’s going on everyone! Excuse me for the hiatus, but things in the KLGO have been hectic in a good way. As an Interpretation and Outreach intern, I’ve been implementing historical and cultural walking tours that focus on the push and pull factors of immigration....

A wise woman once sang, 

“Always gonna be an uphill battle

Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there

Ain't about what's waiting on the other side

It's the climbbbbbbb!” 


Ok, so maybe Miley Cyrus...

Durante el principio de julio, yo tenía que hacer un entrenamiento con mis colegas de CPR y de “Wilderness First Aid”. Desafortunadamente, yo he tenido situaciones en donde algo de emergencia paso y requerían una persona que tenía este entrenamiento (y yo me quede desesperaba)....

Afortunadamente, desde que estoy en el parque he tenido varias aventuras inesperadas. Les voy a contar sobre mi fin de semana de aventuras con unos de mis colegas- Alexis, Jesús y Hannah. Mi jefe nos dio información para viajar, conocer y reunirnos con los guardabosques del monumento nacional...

I have been doing some rounds of site visits for our blogs and recently visited Alejandro, LHIP's interpretation intern at Rocky Mountain National Park. Continue reading to share my experience meeting Alejandro and to follow up...

On this warm summer day, I am meeting with Alejandro Ramos, Latino Heritage Internship Program’s (LHIP) Direct Hire Authority (DHA) interpretation intern, in Estes, Park Colorado. Having already completed an LHIP internship last summer, Alejandro couldn’t resist the opportunity to be back in Rocky Mountain...

En mi corto tiempo como pasante, he conocido muchas personas que son amables e inteligentes. Pero, la persona más influyente para mi desde el comienzo ha sido Lupe. Con Lupe me entrevisté para esta pasantía,  también, fue la primera persona que conocí el primer día trabajando...

Esta tierra no es suya, ni es mía. Esta tierra es de todos nosotros, pero al mismo tiempo todos somos visitantes.

Es fácil decir que todos los días que estoy trabajando, estoy aprendiendo algo nuevo. Tal vez, es muy difícil escoger solamente una cosa para este diario....

Mi proyecto principal, pues estoy involucrada en otros proyectos más pequeños, consiste en detallar la fenología del cactus saguaro y observar sus botones, flores y frutos. Este proyecto utiliza dos personas del parque trabajando lunes, martes, miércoles, jueves, viernes y sábado durante los meses de abril a julio, capturando fotos de...
