"Visiting Our National Parks" with John Bunker

Visiting Our National Parks

Make a date to join John Bunker on Monday, May 24th at 7:00 PM via Zoom to learn about his experiences in visiting over 25 National Parks in the last two decades.  While serving as the Associate Dean, UNH College of Health and Human Services, John originally developed this presentation for an undergraduate class detailing his adventures and misadventures in some of his favorite national parks: Badlands, Bryce, Canyonlands, Glacier, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, and Zion.  Along the way he distilled those two decades of wisdom into a handout called Top Ten Lessons Learned, which participants in the talk are encouraged to download from the link below and follow along during the presentation.

John retired in July 2018 from the University of New Hampshire where he served for seven years as the Director of External Relations and Associate Dean in the College of Health and Human Services. Prior to his positions at UNH, he served as the founding President of New Futures, a nonprofit advocacy organization focused on substance use disorders that was established by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation (1997-2010).  During his tenure at New Futures he was selected to consult with two Robert Wood Johnson Foundation National Advisory Committees, the Local Initiative Funding Partners Program and Reclaiming Futures. John received his Master of Health Science and Doctor of Science from The Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health after serving as a VISTA Volunteer in Alabama and Peace Corps Volunteer in Ethiopia. A native of New Hampshire, he returned to the Granite State in 1996 with his wife Jennifer Kinsey and their two sons to serve as Vice President of Health Risk at Blue Cross & Blue Shield of NH with his wife Jennifer Kinsey and their two sons.  John enjoys yoga, fly fishing, golf, visiting our national parks, cycling, skiing, and grandparenting.
