... "Nothing is more inspiring than stories about heroic people who have truly made a difference to the world," says Barron. "And we need our heroes today more than ever -- people whose character can inspire us all.

..."If you think about why park visitors aren't diverse," he says, "awareness and transportation are small factors. We're missing the big stuff — why is a national park important to me, my family, my future?"
