Great news. Attendance at our National Parks is soaring. Now the scary news – a steep decline in visitors under the age of 25 and overall funding. TheMountCo wants to help the National Park Service reverse this trend and we want you be part of the solution.
On October 2nd, TheMountCo’s Bearded Man began his 15 month odyssey – crisscrossing the country talking to National Park Rangers, supervisors, and visitors at all 59 National Parks. His goal is to listen and facilitate a dialog to help develop creative solutions. This blog will chronicle his travels through video, photographs and a writing style that is uniquely original. At the end of his journey, the blog will be published in book form, with 100% of the profits going directly to the National Park Service. Please engage the conversation via this blog or social media @TheBeardedMan59 and @TheMountCo.
