Our Heritage Area is home to three National Park Service sites, and a neighbor to so many more! Visiting a National Park Service site provides a unique look at our national resources; both natural and cultural. Taking a ranger led tour helps you get the most out of your visit to a site. Ranger talks vary from a specified theme to a general history of the site. They can give you a chance to get one on one with knowledgeable rangers who have a passion for the story of the site and can interpret the significance of the story on to you. You may even catch them doing what they commonly do while sharing their story, “pointing at things!” You can even follow the hashtag #RangersPointingAtThings to get a humorous look at rangers all over the country “pointing at things.”
