Professor Joins 'Next 100 Coalition' to Change the Future of America's National Parks

Carolyn Finney, University of Kentucky assistant professor of geography, is part of a national effort to assure that all people — regardless of race, religion, gender identification or national origin — are welcome in America’s national parks and all public lands. A significant portion of Americans say they simply don’t feel welcome in national parks. A 2008-09 survey by the University of Wyoming and NPS quantifies this feeling of unease among minorities. Non-Hispanic whites accounted for approximately 78 percent of the visitors to national parks; Hispanics, 9 percent; African Americans, 7 percent; Asian Americans, 3 percent; and Native Americans/Alaskans, 1 percent. Some minorities say they don’t see themselves among park employees and guests.
