Happy Birthday to the National Park Service – 95 Years Old Today

It is hard to image our country without a Yellowstone National Park, or a Grand Canyon or even a Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. While Yellowstone was set aside in 1872 it was not until 1919 that the National Park Service was formed.

Glen Canyon is a National Recreation Area managed by the National Park Service and as such has different management goals than say, Yellowstone or The Grand Canyon.  The following is a short film…….

Resource Management Short Film

produced by my son, David Rankin, who works for Glen Canyon and has been producing their podcasts and e-hikes.  This  short film he did on the Science and Resource Management division of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area for a school project explains very diverse nature of the area and the care that goes into managing it.
