Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site would like to welcome our newest Lead Park Ranger, Kim Wentland.  Kim joined our team in September 2020.  Kim was born and raised in Wisconsin and even though she has lived a lot of places, Wisconsin still has a special place in her heart and she's happy to call it her home state. Kim grew up enjoying the outdoors and being surrounded by nature.
