    comments newsroom media and articled research conjure floating questions of what my color paralleled As I was able to gain my bearing on the concept of adulting nearly a full 29 year old I wanted to test the waters and push back on life Luckily through a late night dark room head between pillow and comforter air conditioner blasting Instagram surf I discovered the magic people were experiencing in national parks Hikes swims camps and the glory of red dirt and tall trees I saw it all And I wanted discovery and experiences to become my priority Mysteriously in the way cosmic laws of attraction happen the Foundation put out an opportunity for folks looking to experience the parks in a unique way So I applied I carefully crafted an application to the Find Your Park Expedition contest After thinking the submit button failed me sending a follow up email and eating some good luck crawfish I was welcomed into an opportunity that allowed me to see that questions and assumptions are often defied by determination and targeted choice Resisting the laws of Powerball probability I was picked And then similar to the Powerball plunge all the angst of what was to come bombarded my mind Do I belong there How do you hike Will people be happy that I m there I met smiles that mirrored mine from people that didn t look like me I learned how to prepare what to wear and how to get there from REI Columbia Aramark and Southwest I was greeted by National Park Service leadership and travelers alike I embraced two parks of natural wonder like I had been there before and had always trekked through these parks I wasn t just a black girl I wasn t the exception and I wasn t the token example of a black girl in the wilderness I was me a girl that bent from routine to try an adventure in and around a space and place that was waiting for new visitors and new perspectives I ditched being on the end of question and assumption My shade of grey shifted to a vibrant optimism ready to experience more and ready to not think of myself as a less than black girl One leap one yes and one trip showed me how complete strangers could highlight and lean on the strengths of other complete strangers How my blackness and way of life was both intriguing and awesome How family dinners can make the corniest games seem like the world s greatest ideas and how uncomfortable questions repurpose assumptions into connecting energy I realized more than ever that wallowing in the catch all of assumptions created a fear in shifting priority and questions that can t be answered alone The thing that separates me or any black girl from what we don t do is what we have the opportunity to do and the choices we make to do it We all have the power to

  • Happy Kansas Day from the National Park Foundation! | National Park Foundation
    Few Supreme Court decisions have been as important as the ruling in the case of Brown v Board of Education in 1952 a landmark decision that ended legal segregation in American public schools School districts in four states and the District of Columbia were involved in the case including schools in Topeka Kansas Today the Brown v Board of Education National Historic Site is headquartered at Monroe Elementary School in Topeka Once one of the only schools in Topeka set aside for black students Monroe Elementary was integrated following the Supreme Court s ruling and is now open to the public Nicodemus National Historic Site Kansas was seen as a promised land of sorts to newly freed African Americans after the Civil War Many blacks fled the south following the war heading west to newly founded black colonies or settlements Founded in 1877 the community of Nicodemus Kansas is one of the few such settlements that remain to this day Now preserved as the Nicodemus National Historic Site the community includes a handful of historic buildings including a visitor center with exhibits that harken back to Nicodemus fascinating history Fort Larned National Historic Site Once home to a group of troops known as the guardians of the Santa Fe Trail Fort Larned National Historic Site includes a complete and authentic U S Army post that operated during the 1860s and 1870s The fort continuously hosts historical exhibits and live reenactments providing a unique opportunity to step back in time to when Kansas was on the very edge of the frontier The grounds and historic buildings of Fort Larned are open to self guided as well as ranger led tours The Sunflower State will always hold a special place in America s heartland As Kansas celebrates its birthday on Jan 29

    100 honest I was pleasantly surprised to see so much color Of course if you are going deer hunting you probably don t want the bright teal or peach layering piece but I wanted to look cute and be prepared for my first hiking experiences REI s private label items are warm in chilly weather and look stylish Their collection includes sweater fleeces jackets shirts various tops and pants The pieces are functional stylish and have tons of technical features that can transition into a daily style I especially love my layering bottoms that I sometimes use as yoga pants I m all about repurposing Columbia also has a great line of outdoor gear and a plus size line of clothing I was surprised at first that there was a plus line While it s a small collection it exists which is a statement in itself I was able to get a couple of cute layering pieces that had colors and stripes which I like One of the best things I found in the Columbia collection was the pants Any woman of any size knows that shopping for pants can be a disaster or at least a slight cause for anxiety The bootcut and straight leg styles were so great and spot on in sizing I also got my first pair of hiking sneakers from Columbia I have to say we were a pretty good looking bunch hiking through Great Sand Dunes and Mesa Verde in Colorado More than that I have been able to transition a couple of the pieces into my day to day looks as a teacher and woman dashing around New York City I hope these photos give you an idea of how we styled a number of the pieces we received we re proof that

  • NPF 2015 Impact | National Park Foundation
    of the biggest barriers to connecting kids to our national parks NPF is providing 801 488 in transportation grants to 113 parks to reach an estimated 135 000 kids to eliminate the cost of transportation and get kids outdoors Obed Wild and Scenic River was one of the parks that received a grant to bring urban kids from the Boys Girls club in Knoxville TN to the park for an unforgettable day of hiking and rock climbing Located about an hour from Knoxville the majority of the students and chaperones had never been to the park before Kids participated in a guided hike with two park rangers and learned about the different species of animals insects and plants that live and grow in the park They also went rock climbing which none of the children had ever done before Although a few were anxious at first by the end of the day the kids were clamoring to climb again and didn t want to leave the park We also supported 21 st Century Conservation Corps at several parks in the summer of 2015 Programs like the corps give youth the opportunity to help with conservation and restoration efforts at parks while gaining valuable training and work experience including learning specialized skills and inspire them to be steward of our national parks At Wupatki National Monument local conservation crews re built 250 feet of the Citadel Trail to make it accessible The crew also worked with resource staff at the park to patrol a fence line and remove invasive species We are proud of what we accomplished in 2015 and we re so excited for all the great things we will support in 2016 as we celebrate the National Park Service Centennial Help us make this a celebration worthy of welcoming
