CBS Sunday Morning features St. John

As part of his ongoing series called Trailblazers of our National Parks, CBS correspondent Conor Knighton spent some time at Caneel Bay.

Yesterday morning Sunday Morning featured his 4 minute piece, telling the story of Lawrence Rockefeller and the origin of St. John’s National Park.

It was a great piece. Check it out…

    A nice bit of the history and a free ad for Caneel. It always has been a trade off between the unspoiled park land and everything else.

    Very good for all of us that Laurance was in the right place at the right time. On a trip to St Croix in 1989 I remember Big Beard describing St Thomas as the Manhattan of the Caribbean. Thank you, Laurance & friends, for not letting St John become Jersey City.

    It’s always nice to see Corrine Fenner too. She is a nice addition to the great park staff…

    Those damn 1 percenters like Rockefeller. They don’t contribute anything! 🙂
