GRCNHP offering free admission, special films
VINCENNES - The George Rogers Clark National Historic Park is offering free admission during National Park Week.

This year's dates are April 20-28 with free admission to all national parks April 22-26.

This year's theme for National Park Week is "Did You Know?" NPS officials said the week provides an opportunity for everyone to get to know the George Rogers Clark National Historic Park and the stories and resources that it protects.

For example, did you know that the George Rogers Clark memorial is the largest battlefield memorial in the country? Did you know that the Clark Memorial had a profound impact on the conception of the iconic Jefferson National Expansion Memorial (St. Louis Arch)?

To commemorate the week, the GRCNHP has planned two evenings of special programming to share these parts of its story.

On Monday, GRCNHP will be showing two films, one highlighting the construction of the St. Louis Arch, the other highlighting the presidential memorials in Washington D.C.

On April 24, GRCNHP will present a ranger-led program entitled, Step Brothers: The Clark Memorial and the St. Louis Arch." This program will highlight the strong connection between the two midwestern monuments.

Both evening programs will begin at 6:30 p.m. (EST) and will be held at the park vistitor center at 401 S. 2nd St. in Vincennes.
