Program Description

Event Details

Chicago actor RJ Lindsay portrays Stephen T. Mather, founding director of the National Park Service, and tells the dramatic story of how he saved our National Parks from neglect, logging and development. Enjoy stunning photographs of our National Parks and wildlife and hear stories about how the park system doubled in size under his leadership. 

He also takes you on a Mather Mountain Party, a ten day camping trip with editors, writers, and congressman and other influentials showing them the natural wonders that needed new parks to preserve them for all generations.

RJ Lindsey will be presenting from Zoom, not in the Library. In person attendance is available, we will be projecting the program on the Library’s big screen in our event room.
