Reserve Now for September 24 Lecture:
Anacostia Park, a 1200-acre park across the Anacostia River from the Navy Yard, is 100 years old this year. With the steady improvement of the Anacostia River and the recently opened Riverwalk Trail, the park is undergoing a renaissance. To the casual visitor, the park's value as a recreational area is obvious. However, underneath those ball fields and trails is a history stretching back thousands of years. For September's Overbeck history lecture, Vince Vaise, chief of visitor services at Anacostia Park, will detail the stories of Native Americans, civil rights battles, and historic landmarks. The Overbeck Hstory lecture will be Monday evening, September 24, at 7:30 p.m. at Hill Center, 921 Pennsylvania Avenue, S.E. As always, admission is free but a reservation is required due to limited seating.
