As we conceptualized the idea of Hello Ranger, the central philosophy of it all was the sense of community. It’s what inspires us as we explore national parks, meeting new people and learning from them as we go. We knew from the very beginning that we couldn’t do Hello Ranger without this idea of community as its foundation. Thus, we’re proud to work with a crew of Hello Ranger Ambassadors, who act as digital guides to various regions and topics surrounding our national parks.
These are people who serve as impassioned representatives of specific ideas within the national parks community, be it a regional expert from the Southeast or Alaska; someone who can share insight and stories relating to mental health and wellness; or someone well-versed in the world of tent and car camping. Altogether, our Hello Ranger Ambassadors are divvied into five categories: Regional, Camping, Education, Lifestyle, and Diversity. Find your guide by searching your articles of interest, where you’ll be able to follow their journeys with bi-monthly stories.
