In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt made a 17-city whistle stop tour of Washington State, inspiring thousands of Washington residents on both sides of the Cascades. The wilderness legacy that ensued from this visit guarantees our sense of place in Washington state today with the formation of national wildlife refuges, national forests and parks, and national monuments.
Join us on Wednesday, November 2nd at 6:00pm as history teacher, Scott Woodward, explores this fascinating topic in his Humanities Washington presentation, Theodore Roosevelt: Wilderness Warrior. This presentation combines music, anthropology and history as Woodward discusses Theodore Roosevelt’s signature approach to getting things done: combining politics with citizenship that crossed all political lines and built legacies for future generations, as well as establishing the sense of place we have today.
Doors open at 5:30pm. The talk will be followed by a reception featuring complimentary snacks, a cash bar, and entrance to the Museum galleries for the evening. This event is FREE and open to the public, but seats are limited. To reserve your place, please contact Alphild Dick, Marketing & Events Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 253-858-6722 ext. 5 today.
