War in the Pacific National Historical Park

War in the Pacific National Historical Park announces Conservation Ranger Camp. The park is seeking motivated high school students who have a passion for the environment and who are willing to take on leadership responsibilities. This free, dynamic program introduces youth to fun, safe, and exciting ways to explore our island’s natural resources and learn about marine science at Guam’s national park.

In the first session of this two-part program, from July 1-6, 2019 (no program July 4), Conservation Rangers will learn leadership skills and how to be mentors. They will also learn about the threats to the environment and coral reefs in particular. During the second session of the program, July 29 to August 2, Conservation Rangers will serve as youth leaders for the park’s Reef Ranger Summer Camp. As role models, the Conservation Rangers will help the younger Reef Ranger campers learn about threats to coral reefs from within and outside the ocean, as well as help them during hiking and water activities. Conservation Rangers must be available to attend both sessions.

Applications are available at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center (located near Navy Base Guam) or may requested by email (kina_lewis@nps.gov). All applications must be submitted in person or via email no later than Monday, June 24, 2019.
