“As a native New Englander I have enjoyed the excitement of backpacking in the White Mountains along the Appalachian Trail as well as the serenity of walking along the beach in the National Seashore on Cape Cod. Through the years our summer family vacations have been filled with the exploration of our wonderful National Parks from Acadia to the Grand Canyon and from the Everglades to the Olympic Mountains. I am very proud as a member of the National Park Trust Board of Trustees to be actively involved in protecting and preserving our terrific park system and, at the same time, to be helping young school students discover the outdoors through wonderful park experiences.”
