Join a local expert to learn more about many of the U.S. National Parks in the Northwest of the country such as Yellowstone, Grand Teton, and Glacier. We will also highlight lesser-known parks like the Colorado National Monument, Great Sand Dunes, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison.

The national parks of the Rockies and the Northwest range from big-name National Parks including Yellowstone, Olympic, and Glacier as well as lesser-known sites such as Colorado National Monument, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, and Redwoods National Park. We will discuss each of these parks including location, history, highlights, and a few travel trips.

With over 25 national park sites in the region, the presenter will share stories and tips from some of his favorites and also encourage the participants to add their own stories or ask questions about specific parks. The presentation will be dotted with vivid imagery of each park in order to virtual transport participants to each destination.

Led by an expert on the U.S. National Parks, Ben Sander, this interactive seminar will highlight the national parks of Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Washington, Oregon, and Northern California. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of the diversity of parks in this region.

This conversation is part of a series on U.S National Parks. Sessions can be joined independently and in any order.

More National Parks and national parks of the Northwest

This is another seminar chock full of information but that doesn't seem rushed even given the number of places covered. I learned a lot about places close to me that I hadn't know about but will plan to visit...

Fast with a lot of great information

This was a fast overview with great visuals and very good information about what to expect, what to do and when to go.

Look at U.S. National Parks of the Northwest with Ben Sander

This is third Conversation that I have done with Ben Sander. Like others, this was very well done. I got lots of good ideas for visiting Parks in Northwest and am inspired to go.

Very broad overview

This was a good introduction to the National Parks of the Northwest, but doesn’t include much for those who know basics about these parks — or who can Google them. I will be visiting Yellowstone this fall and had hoped to learn more useful tips for our drive. Perhaps a course on Yellowstone and Grand Teton alone would have been more useful for me. But Ben covered a lot of ground well, even though it didn’t meet my needs.
