Episode 158 of Walk in the Park

The National Park Service has run afoul the politics of the Trump administration starting on inauguration day. We’ll look at this, and then cover the spectacular Women’s March on Ithaca the next day. And to lighten the mood, we’ll go to Jones Beach State Park last summer, and to Watkins Glen State Park.

Interpreting Science and the Gulf of Mexico

In this episode (151) of Walk in the Park, we are in Corpus Christi, Texas. The vital role that park rangers and others who interpret our natural and cultural heritage play in communicating science to the public is the theme of a keynote address given by Dr. Larry McKinney of the Harte Research Institute at Texas A&M University to the annual conference of the NAI, the National Association for Interpretation, which I attended during the second week of November. He focuses our attention on the importance and health of the Gulf of Mexico, “America’s Sea.”
