"Why I Want To Be a Park Ranger When I Grow Up"
From time to time on the Traveler we mention various openings for artist-in-residence positions in national parks, or announce which artists win these coveted spots. Kathleen Heideman recently completed her sixth stint as an artist-in-residence, at Badlands National Park.
An artist as well as a poet, Ms. Heideman wrote a poem, "Why I want to be a park ranger when I grow up." She describes the poem as her "wide-eyed-child ode to Park Rangers!"
