The latest version of the Ebinder Reference Manual is now available. You can find it under the Reference page.
Speaking of reference material, do you know the 3 most valuable sources of information about our park that are not only easily accessible but fun too?
1. Your favorite Rangers and other VIPs: they know history, names of plants and animals, upcoming events, and even fun and not well-known trivia, and can tell you all about them in a great interpretive way.
2. The ebinder, which is a 1,500 page comprehensive collection of all things Cabrillo National Monument. It includes information about every facet of our park, like interesting facts about NPS and CNM, living history, JRC (you know HIM), The Kumeyaaay Nation, our Lighthouse and Fort Rosecrans, the park’s military history, everything to do with our Rocky Intertidal Zone, the plants and animals found in and around Cabrillo, our park’s very interesting geology, and everything you need to know about being a volunteer. You can access it online or download it to your device for quick and easy access. Check it out here: https://cnmvipvoice.org/reference/.
Look at the Table of Contents for what you want to peruse first, and plan to spend some quality time because one thing leads to another….
3. The VIP Voice started out as a volunteer blog and has morphed into a central place for volunteers and staff to find information about current topics and goings on around the park. Like the ebinder, it started out as a volunteer resource but has become so fun, and valuable, that everyone enjoys it. Go to: https://cnmvipvoice.org. Then make sure you go to the right side of the page where is says “Follow Blog via Email” and enter your email address for a periodic email about a current and interesting topics. You won’t be sorry.
