DI­A­MOND — The an­nual Sto­ry­telling Days at Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton Carver Na­tional Mon­u­ment are Aug. 25-26.

From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Aug. 25, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 26, the event cel­e­brates the es­tab­lish­ment of the Na­tional Park Ser­vice and fo­cuses on sto­ries about Amer­i­can cul­ture and his­tory. The event will take place in the mul­tipur­pose room and is free of charge. The sched­ule in­cludes:

This Find Your Park event in­vites the pub­lic to see that a na­tional park can be more than a place — it can be a feel­ing, a state of mind, or a sense of Amer­i­can pride. Be­yond vast land­scapes, the cam­paign high­lights his­tor­i­cal, ur­ban and cul­tural parks, as well as the Na­tional Park Ser­vice pro­grams that pro­tect, preserve and share na­ture, cul­ture and his­tory in com­mu­ni­ties na­tion­wide. Ad­min­is­tered by the Na­tional Park Ser­vice, an agency of the De­part­ment of the Interior, Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton Carver Na­tional Mon­u­ment pre­serves the birth­place and child­hood home of Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton Carver, sci­en­tist, ed­u­ca­tor, and hu­man­i­tar­ian. Please call the park at 417-325-4151 be­tween 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion. Visit the web­site at www.nps.gov/gwca and Facebook page. The park is lo­cated two miles west of Di­a­mond, Mo., on High­way V, then a quar­ter-mile south on Carver Road.
