Junior Ranger Visits Anniston's Greyhound Bus Station

The nation’s most decorated Junior Ranger in the National Parks Service recently visited some of East Alabama’s historic sites and national parks. Adia Frey has been involved in the National Parks Service as a Junior Ranger since she was nine years old. Now, at 16, she has visited more than 300 national parks.

Frey recently visited the old Gurnee Avenue Greyhound bus station that tells the story about the Freedom Riders. During her visit, the junior ranger learned about the Freedom Riders journey through a special phone call from Charles Person, a Freedom Rider.

Frey stamped her national parks passport book at the national monument, marking this trip as her 306th park visit. The junior ranger shares what she enjoys most about being able to travel the country to visit all parks. Frey also says she enjoys traveling with her family during the holidays and on summer vacation because that is when she can spend most of her time learning about the different parks without cutting school studies.
