“I’m honored to join the board of the National Park Trust. NPT works with such determination to uphold and, quite literally, expand the legacy of our country’s national parks. And thanks to Buddy Bison, NPT has brought the easy magic and wonder of our parks to kids who might not otherwise get the chance to experience them. It’s hard not to get excited at the prospect of being a part of this terrific organization. It’s also great to reconnect with the park service, after serving as a volunteer at Badlands National Park for two summers when I was in college.”
