In October 2011 I attended National Association for Interpretation training at Tryon Creek State Park to become a Certified Interpretive Guide. This was a nice bookend to my first summer as a seasonal interpretive ranger.
I had the privilege to work in the Columbia River Gorge Park Management Unit during the summer of 2011 as a Seasonal Interpretive Ranger. Under the tutelage of the illustrious Lisa Midlam, I interpreted invasive species for an AANR work party (I'll let you google the acronym), discussed water conservation during campground programs at Ainsworth State Park, and answered a myriad of questions at the gateway to the west end of The Gorge at none other than Vista House.
