I have just completed my first two weeks of interpretation. During that time I learned much about the history of the city I live in and was able to visit every building at the site. I was able to shadow two rangers on their daily grind and see firsthand how they deal with issues that may arise. Their decisions will undoubtedly shape my future interaction with people within the park. As Steve had suggested, I have encountered some animosity once individuals discovered that we would be given the opportunity for a non-competitive permanent position. I have tried to deflect this negativity and focus on the myriad other positive relationships I am beginning to establish.
Until next time!
