Shell Point Retirement Community welcomes Dr. Craig Rademacher, who will offer a visual presentation on several of our National Parks.  The event will take place on Thursday, July 29 at 7p.m. in the Village Church Auditorium in The Island neighborhood at Shell Point Retirement Community.

“Many of us grew up visiting several of the national parks throughout the country,” said Mary Franklin, Resort Services Manager at Shell Point. “This presentation will offer attendees a better understanding of the background on the various national parks, as well as giving them a chance to view some unique photos of beautiful landscapes from all over the country. It will surely be an event that nature and adventure lovers would thoroughly enjoy, as well as people who grew up near any national parks.”

Since 1872, national parks have been a part of the American experience. People have grown up visiting these parks, and built a psychological and emotional connection to their grand landscapes and enduring heritage. Dr. Rademacher will explore our understanding of how national parks evolved and why these magnificent places form an essential link between our nations’ past and its future.

The event is free; however seating is limited and a reservation is required. Please call 239-454-2054 to RSVP or for further information.
