National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis has had a higher profile than most people who’ve held his position. That’s because the National Park Service this year turned 100 years old. Events to honor the centennial included a summer-long celebration and a push to get more people to connect with America’s outdoor treasures.

Tonight, Jarvis will offer a lecture as a guest of Boise State’s Andrus Center for Public Policy.

Ahead of his visit, our Frankie Barnhill spoke with Jarvis, a 40-year national parks employee. You can hear their conversation below.
