The mission of the National Park Service (NPS) is to steward over 400 places established specifically for their preservation and enjoyment by present and for future generations. Collectively, these places are the physical manifestations of the American narrative, from our desire to preserve great natural wonders, to the accurate telling of our complex history. Jon Jarvis, who served forty years with the NPS and the last eight as Director, will explore the deeper meaning behind these extraordinary National Parks and their relevancy to today’s issues of civil rights, environmental justice, climate change, and core American values.

Lunch will be provided to those who RSVP to
