2016 marks the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the National Park Service, one of this country’s best loved government agencies. Most Montana residents are very familiar with the NPS, with six units all or partly in Montana, including world famous Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks. Join us as we explore and celebrate the history and meaning of the National Park Service with the overseer of interpretive/educational operations for the north half of Yellowstone National Park.

Presenter Bio:  Brian Suderman is a Supervisory Park Ranger at Yellowstone National Park. As North District Resource Education Ranger, he oversees the visitors centers and interpretive/educational operations in the north half of the park. From an early age, he dreamed of working as a park ranger. Besides Yellowstone, he has worked at Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, and Glacier Bay National Park. Brian is married to the park’s exhibit specialist.
