Jeff Hodge is the San Juan Island National Historic Park’s Lead Interpretive Ranger — Lead for a team of three storytelling rangers here. Much of his life, Jeff wanted to be a park ranger. This is his dream job.

The National Park here is one of the island’s largest land owners and attracts three-quarters of a million visitors, both tourists and locals.

Jeff offers updates on the foxes, the Island Marble Butterflies (and what you can do to help in your own yard), a project to improve accessibility to English Camp, and he teased an anticipated announcement regarding campfires on South Beach within the next two weeks. And he discussed vandalism in the parks.
