National Parks Traveler Honored By George Wright Society

Kurt Repanshek, founder and editor-in-chief of National Parks Traveler, the top-ranked website dedicated to daily editorial coverage of national parks, has been awarded the George Wright Society’s Communication Award.

The award recognizes outstanding efforts in communicating highly technical or controversial park-related subjects to the public in a clear and understandable manner. Repanshek received the award at the organization’s biennial conference in Oakland, Calif.

Founded in 1980, the George Wright Society states as its goal that “The Society strives to be the premier organization connecting people, places, knowledge, and ideas to foster excellence in natural and cultural resource management, research, protection, and interpretation in parks and equivalent reserves.”

“I am absolutely humbled by this award because I share the values and goals of the George Wright Society,” said Repanshek. “It is imperative that we as a society continue to improve, nurture and learn from our national parks. On the one hand I am fortunate to be able to help tell the stories of the parks, but on the other I am like so many others who simply possess a profound love of our parks, monuments, historic sites and other places managed by the National Park Service.”
