Blue Dot 11: 100 Years Of National Parks

This years marks the centennial of the National Park Service. This week on Blue Dot, we speak with some of the kind folks who work to keep some of our nearby national parks pristine and available to the public. Karen Haner is Chief of Interpretation and Education at Lassen Volcanic National Park, and Craig Ackerman is superintendent at Crater Lake National Park

Dave Schlom is the longtime host and creator of Blue Dot. From surfing to Voyager in interstellar space, rock guitar to orcas in our imperiled oceans, the topics on Blue Dot are as varied as the host’s interests and connections -- which are pretty limitless! An internationally respected space history journalist, Dave is also deeply fascinated by all aspects of the grand workings of nature’s awesome machinery on scales ranging from galactic to subatomic. And topics take in all aspects of the arts and sciences.
