Buddy Bison Student Ambassador Program


Our Buddy Bison Student Ambassadors promote the vision and mission of National Park Trust. The Student Ambassador program was created in 2015 at the commencement of the National Park Service Centennial Celebration, giving our next generation of park stewards a platform to share their stories.

Buddy Bison Student Ambassadors are volunteer student leaders who represent National Park Trust by supporting our mission and programs. They are stewards of our parks and love to discover different public lands and waters and share what they learn with other kids. They often receive access to special park events, and enjoy meeting many park officials and rangers.

You can follow their adventures on social media @JrRangerTigran, @JrRangerSarah, @JrRangerAudrey, @Jr_Ranger_Bry and by subscribing to our student newsletter, Buddy Bison’s Buzz.
