Third Thursday at Hoover's - The Progression of America's National Parks

Mar 17, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Meeting Room D


Today’s National Park system consists of 423 different sites, covers more than 85 million acres, and welcomes more than 300 million annual visitors. At their best, the national Parks shine as an innovative example for the world, uniquely American, and grounded in democratic ideals. The 158-year evolution of the National Parks is a story about the successes and failures of a country that has taken some time to develop a deeper sense of pride for these special places.

About the Speaker: Park Ranger Jenny Cripe Davis has worked for the National Park Service since 2016. Long before she started her career with the NPS, Jenny was a supporter, and fan, spending many family vacations visiting some of the country’s greatest national treasures.
