Interpreters and Scientists Working On Our Parks (iSWOOP) was funded by the National Science Foundation as a model program to build visitors’ understanding of science at national parks together with educators, scientists, and rangers.

I was also very glad to have had the opportunity to talk to the researchers, ask questions and collect data. That experience is something I can share with visitors … [to] inspire them to think about the world in a dynamic way.
