Hello -

   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
   Washington's birth.

   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.
   Please call the DOI Library at (202) 208-3796 or contact us via e-mail
   at [log in to unmask] if you have any questions.
