We stopped here to get information on all things St. John and the staff was friendly and courteous. I am sure they have answered these same questions thousands of times before, but were still enthusiastic about sharing their expertise with our group.

This could be a goldmine for visitors but the staff working during our brief visit was not up to their task unfortunately. You really had to understand how much you could give to a visitor who is just here for a short while. Servicecourses?

This is one of the smaller visitor centers I have experienced. It is mostly a gift shop (to support the park). The staff provide information related to visiting then park, therefore this should be your starting point for your explorations.
