National Park Service Peggy O’Dell and Emily Poirier Makeup with Sandra Beck and Robin Boyd
As deputy director of the National Park Services, Peggy O’Dell oversees 408 national parks and offices around the nation. She is responsible for every aspect of park operations including the preservation and protection of 84 million acres, 100 million museum objects, 27,000 historic structures, and 85,000 miles of rivers and streams, as well as recreation, education, and hospitality services for the more than 285 million people who visit national parks every year.
2016 will mark the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. In preparing for the centennial, the focus is preparing for the next century of conservation, connecting with and creating the next generation of National Park Service visitors, supporters, and advocates. Introduce the parks to people who are not using the parks yet, so the parks are accessible to new visitors and that they will be welcomed.
An array of programs are also available through the National Park Service, including the Junior Ranger Program, Webrangers, Junior Cave Scientists, Every Kid In A Park initiative, and a new partnership with the Girl Scouts of the USA, the Girl Scout Park Ranger Program.
Military families are welcome to the National Park Service with an annual military pass for free. Visit any park and request a pass.
Ms. O’Dell began her National Park Service career as a seasonal interpreter at Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis while attending college at the University of Missouri where she earned a B.A. in History. O’Dell managed the interpretation and education programs at Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Missouri, served as superintendent of Jewel Cave National Monument in South Dakota, and was deputy manager of the National Park Service’s interpretive design center in West Virginia. O’Dell went on to serve as regional director of the National Capital Region for the past two years and before that was superintendent of the National Mall and Memorial Parks in Washington, DC.
