David Kroese, a Northwest Illinois native, made it his mission to visit over 400 national parks, monuments, historic sites, preserves, memorials, rivers and waterways, and recreation sites. Once completed, he turned his stories into The Centennial: A Journey Through America’s National Parks System (the book will be available for purchase at the program). Kroese will be sharing both his experiences with the National Parks Service and the experiences of Ulysses S. Grant as he moved through the system during his lifetime.
