The public affairs fellow will research, write, and disseminate a broad range of communication products from web and social media content to news releases, remarks, talking points, and strategic communication plans that showcase NPS stories and mission-related messages. The work of the fellow will help ensure that high-quality information is available to the public so they can learn about, enjoy and help care for national parks. The nps.gov website is a primary digital vehicle for the public to learn about their parks and plan a visit to over 400 national parks nationwide, including more than 50 parks in the Washington, D.C. area. With demand on web resources exceeding the capability of park staff to maintain it, there are many instances where parks need help crafting their communications with internal audiences and the public to ensure that high-quality, accessible information is being provided.
