The National Park Service celebrates its 100-year anniversary next summer. Though the system's 407 national parks attract more than 280 million visitors annually, the Park Service has set lofty goals for its future: increase the diversity of visitors to include more youth and people of color, partner with health providers and ramp up collaborations with scientists, which is the focus of a summit this week at UC Berkeley. National Park Service director Jonathan Jarvis is in town for the summit, and joins us in the studio.
