About

My name is Greg Shine and I’m the Chief Ranger & Historian for the National Park Service at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site and an adjunct faculty member in the Portland State University (PSU) History Department. At PSU, I teach the four-credit upper division & graduate level course on historic site interpretation in conjunction with the park’s Public History Field School.

In addition to managing interpretive programs & activities, teaching, researching & writing, and staying on top of other public history tasks, I enjoy collaborating on digital media projects that help people connect to national parks and history in new and innovative ways.
