Hey National Parks fans! We wanted to give you a bit more detail about our Patreon on our website. It’s quite similar to what you’ll find on the Patreon page, just in a more convenient location.
If you’re on this site, you probably know a bit about us. However, I’ll do a quick recap just in case!
We’re Lucas & Sarah, creators of Podcasts with Park Rangers and this blog — Virtual Kamper. We’re full-time RVers exploring all 400+ National Park and Historic sites.
On our show Podcasts with Park Rangers, we feature stories of the Parks through the eyes of the Park Rangers who live and work in them every day. Telling their stories behind the parks is our way of preserving America’s best idea.
We want to take you to places of immense beauty and learn about nature and science. As well as take a deep dive into history where we can examine the past and learn the lessons it has to tell. As an example, this episode talks about a special project going on at Glacier with the Bark Ranger:
The model of patronage for the arts is something that’s existed for centuries. Your contribution allows us to bring more awareness to the National Parks and helps us bring the show to a bigger audience. You’ll also get to join us every step of the way and see what it’s like to create the show!
We’re honored in your consideration of patronage for the show! It means a lot to us that you believe in our mission to help preserve the parks. Please consider contributing $1 (or more).
We’ll continue to create a high-quality podcast! And, you’ll help us bring these stories to an audience much bigger than we could ever dream of!
If you join our Patreon family, you’ll join a community of National Parks fans who believe in the message behind the National Parks – to preserve these places for future generations!
