    Hi Everyone -

    Please join us via webinar for our next free Department of the Interior Library Park Ranger Speaker Series lecture, entitled "The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial" on Tuesday, March 16th from 1:00 - 2:00 pm ET.

    Dedicated on September 17, 2020, the Dwight David Eisenhower Memorial is the newest addition to the roll call of memorials at the National Mall and Memorial Parks in Washington, DC. The brainchild of architect Frank Gehry, this expansive four-acre memorial stretches along Independence Avenue, close to sites tied to our nation's 34th president. The memorial features a stainless-steel tapestry depicting the beaches of D-Day, heroic-sized bronze sculptures, and stone bas reliefs. Park Ranger Brad Berger will look at how the structural design of the memorial symbolically unfolds before the visitor, and the life and history which it celebrates.

    All that are interested are invited. Please go to the following link to request webinar registration information:
