Weekend Sherpa Podcast: Take it Outside.

NEW EPISODE: Great National Parks and Trying to Save One from Politics: In celebration of National Park Week, Weekend Sherpa co-founders Brad Day and Holly Kulak discuss eight great national park adventures they shared via this week's email newsletter in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Then they have a conversation with podcast guest Daniel Dietrich, the filmmaker behind "Tule Elk: The Killing of a Native Species." It's a discussion about a controversial decision to kill Tule Elk in Point Reyes National Seashore to make more room for cattle ranchers to let their cows graze more land. This is a highly charged topic, with politics and money shrouding the controversy. Find out ways to help save the Tule Elk living in the park.
