GRCNHP to offer movie night

Visitors come to national parks from all over the world to experience the beauty and the splendor of “America’s Best Idea.” National parks hold different meanings for different people. Every person finds a piece of himself or herself in these special places.

The National Park Service is charged with protecting America’s special places and stories. From the grandeur and beauty of Yellowstone to the sacrifice of American soldiers at Gettysburg, these places represent the legacy of America’s cultural and natural heritage. At the end of every April, the country celebrates National Park Week where visitors are encouraged to discover their national parks.

To celebrate National Park Week, George Rogers Clark National Historical Park will offer visitors a chance to view movies from three of our nation’s national parks. Two of the movies will allow visitors to discover two of America’s most iconic parks, Yellowstone National Park and Grand Canyon National Park. “The Challenge of Yellowstone,” highlights the wonder and wildlife of America’s first national park. “Grand Canyon: A Journey of Wonder,” allows visitors to discover one of the seen natural wonders of the world. Finally, the last national park featured allows visitors to understand a little known, but vitally important battle in American history, “The Battle of Horseshoe Bend.” This national park shares the legacy of this important battle between American soldiers and Creek Indians, and the difficult legacy that it left behind.

The movies will begin at 6:30 p.m. April 23 at the GRCNHP Visitor Center at 401 S. Second St., Vincennes. This program is offered free of charge.
