People of the Parks – Andrea Lankford

Feb 28, 05:00 AM

For our second installment of People of the Parks segment, we sit down with Andrea Lankford. We discuss her career in the NPS in units including The Grand Canyon and Yosemite, her celebrated literary works such as Ranger Confidential and her astonishing outdoor accomplishments. We talk about what it is like being a woman in the outdoors, how to be safe, and encourage all women to get outside. An avid believer in outdoor exploration, Andrea is an advocate of solo ventures for all. 

We love our National Parks and we know you do too but when you're out there, remember to enjoy the view but watch your back.
