A Program in Honor of the

100th Anniversary of the National Parks

 

Tales of Everglades

National Park Rangers

by Cristi Carmichael and Bob Showler

Christi Carmichael and Bob Showler have lived and worked in national parks since the 1980's.  For much of their careers they have worked in Everglades National Park, where they serve as Interpretive Rangers. Christi and Bob present evening programs, give bird walks, work on park interpretive materials, and answer visitors’ questions in the Flamingo District at the southernmost end of the park. They love their jobs.

To help Orange Audubon Society (OAS) commemorate the Centennial year of the National Park Service, Christi and Bob have been kind enough to come up from the Flamingo District to Orlando. They will present a brief history of the National Park Service, tell what makes Everglades National Park such a special place, and how birds have played a major role in the history of the park, weaving in their own anecdotes of what they have seen and experienced as rangers. This is a great opportunity for young people interested in a similar career as a park ranger to ask questions.

Orange Audubon Societies programs are free and no reservations are necessary. Programs are held in the Camellia Room of Leu Gardens,1920 N. Forest Avenue, Orlando (for directions, visit http://www.leugardens.org/plan/directions.htm).
