Celebrate National Parks! The Naturalist

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Arches National Park

Arches National Park in Utah is home to more than 2,000 known arches. 

Darrin Lunde, collection manager at the National Museum of Natural History, presents the story of Theodore Roosevelt and how his lifelong passion for the natural world set the stage for America’s wildlife conservation movement. Drawing on Roosevelt’s diaries and expedition journals, along with Lunde’s own experience as a museum naturalist, he will discuss Roosevelt’s life and legacy as a champion of scientific inquiry and wilderness.

A book signing will follow the event.
