The National Park Service, sometimes described as "America's Best Idea," just celebrated it's 100th anniversary. NPS set aside sites that are particularly beautiful or scientifically or historically significant and made them available to the public on a scale unprecedented in world history. Although spectacular places in western states and coastal regions might initially come to mind, some of the nearly 500 NPS sites are in the Midwest. Accomplished cultural geographer Norman Moline will present highlights of NPS history and then focus on sites in Illinois and adjacent states. Before the lecture enjoy a buffet dinner by the Public Landing Restaurant with other history and nature fans. Reservations required.
