Award-winning Junior Ranger Book and National Parks Week 2018

If you happen to be headed to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks for National Parks Week (April 21-29) with the kids, be sure to stop by one of the visitor’s centers and pick up a free copy of the Junior Ranger Book.  In late 2017, the book and the creative team that put it together was awarded First Place for Site Publications by the National Association for Interpretation (NAI). I was one of two artists on the team and I illustrated the interior activities in the book. The other artist, Nicolle Fuller, created the art for the front cover. The team was led by the parks' Visual Information Specialist, Erika Williams.

Filled with lots of fun and facts, kids ages 5 and up can earn an official Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks Junior Ranger badge by completing the fun activities in the book.
In June 2016 I was the Artist-in-Residence in Sequoia National Park. You can read more about my experience by clicking on the snapshot below...
