My Plus 50 Learning Experience
We are spending a day each at five National Parks or Historic Sites located in western South Dakota; Mount Rushmore, Wind Cave, Minuteman Missile, Badlands, and Jewel Cave.
Even though I am a native South Dakotan and have lived in The Black Hills since 2000, I regard this as a great opportunity to re-visit the 5 parks/sites from a different perspective - "to actually listen and learn".
We received our Plus 50 National Park Service Training Program Certificates on November 19, 2010.
We have completed the "Plus 50" class and had a great experience. Western Dakota Tech and The National Parks Service people were terrific! It's incredible that there are 5 National Parks this close together and this close to Rapid City, South Dakota. It's not so incredible that I did learn a lot about these parks and because I live this close to them, I will visit them often.
