Buddy loves National Park Service Rangers because they are always happy and excited to teach our students about the outdoors. Ranger Kelly Fox from the C&O Canal National Historical Park visited three of our schools this winter.

At St. Andrew's Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland, Ranger Kelly participated in the lower school science fair where she engaged both kids and adults in the wonders of our parks. This is what she had to say about working with our Buddy Bison students:

"I'm so happy that the Buddy Bison Program has connected our park with schools nearby. It has been wonderful getting to know students who are already stewards of our park--and helping to connect even more!"

Thank you Ranger Kelly. Our students are always excited to see you!
