In his upcoming Overbeck Lecture, Vince Vaise, Chief of Visitor Services at National Capital Parks-East, will trace the thrilling story of the evolution of these parks - how they mirrored the development of the nation's capital city, reflected public values regarding public lands and fostered a land ethic that led to a national park service. The program will focus on Capitol Hill’s larger, named parks – Lincoln, Stanton, Seward, Marion, Folger and Garfield. Even though they were all created by the L'Enfant plan, they each have a different story to tell about life on Capitol Hill over the past two centuries.
This lecture has been temporarily postponed. Registration will become available when it is rescheduled.
