Once I found myself in the wilderness, it didn’t take long to realize that the Partners in the Parks experience was exactly what I needed


Mt. Rainier National Park

Partners in the Parks at Mt. Rainier was one of the most memorable opportunities of my college career.


Buffalo National River

The calm river and warm sun created fertile ground for friendship. Even the rain couldn’t keep the group apart.


Grand Canyon National Park

I consider myself an experienced outdoor person, and yet nothing had ever really prepared me for the entirely new world that faced me out west.


Buffalo National River, Arkansas

The thing that surprised me the most from this trip, was not seeing the beautiful scenery, but instead seeing how much I would grow attached to the people I paddled down the Buffalo with.


Virgin Islands National Park

I was just excited to be able to spend a week in the Virgin Islands National Park located on the island of St. John. But this trip far exceeded any expectations.

It taught me that people from all different backgrounds have something to offer to a difficult situation, and it has made me very interested in joining the rescue service for a future career.
