Parked at Home with Megan Kate Nelson
“The national parks are the best idea we ever had. Absolutely American, absolutely democratic, they reflect us at our best rather than our worst.” – Wallace Stegner, 1983
In documentaries and popular media, National Park Service sites are often called America’s “best idea.” During this program, we will consider this argument with historian and author Megan Kate Nelson. Dr. Nelson is the author of several books, including Saving Yellowstone: Exploration and Preservation in Reconstruction America (2022). Learn about the origins of Yellowstone National Park and join us for a conversation on the history of public lands in the United States.
