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.

My Plus 50 Learning Experience
Plus 50, Western Dakota Tech, and The National Park Service

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.
