Scotts Bluff National Monument rangers return from Hurricane Sandy relief with stories

Posted: Updated:

Staff from Scotts Bluff National Monument have stories to tell from their recovery efforts after Hurricane Sandy.

The four volunteers from the National Monument were sent to Fire Island National Seashore in New York after the hurricane.

They helped those employees get back into their homes and helped re-open parks with serious damage from the storm.

The Fire Island Seashore is still not fully recovered, but Park Ranger A.J. Legault says the people there had hope.

"The folks that we met were extremely friendly, positive and upbeat about rebuilding. They all made assumptions that we were from parks in the area, and when I told them we were from Western Nebraska chins dropped."

Legault says he was thankful for the opportunity to help and appreciates the monument sending him.
