Three Rivers' Cultural Outreach

Most recently, our Park Service Officers and Interpretive Naturalists participated in a “Building Cultural Bridges Camp” at the Hmong Cultural Center.

Three Rivers participants shared information about our facilities and programming with camp participants, who talked about Hmong culture and their experiences in America. Participants were very eager to learn about our park system, and were surprised by the depth and diversity of our offerings. Additional outreach and partnership events with the Southeast Asian community are planned during the summer at our Carver and Silverwood Parks.
