Please join us for the next in our regular monthly series of Department
of the Interior Library Park Ranger Speaker Series lectures, "The George
Washington Memorial Parkway" next Tuesday, July 17th from 1:00 - 1:45 pm
in the DOI Library.
The George Washington Memorial Parkway preserves the natural scenery
along the Potomac River. It connects historic sites from Mount Vernon,
where Washington lived, past the nation's capital, which he founded, and
to the Great Falls of the Potomac, where the President demonstrated his
skills as an engineer. Developed as a memorial to George Washington,
the Parkway may be used on any day to travel to exciting historical,
natural, and recreational areas. These places are all linked by this
planned and landscaped road, the first section of which was completed 75
years ago, in 1932, to commemorate the bicentennial of George
Please join National Park Service Ranger Dana Dierkes in the Department
of the Interior Library for a look at the history of the George
Washington Memorial Parkway, the interesting sites along its path, and
its continued significance to the Washington area.
All are welcome to attend, government and general public. The
Department of the Interior Library is located in the Main Interior
Building, located at 1849 C Street, NW, Room 1151 in Washington.
