Our Funds At Work: Eastern National and Lincoln Home National Historic Site

Sep 15, 2017Park Story

With support from an Eastern National Competitive Grant of $3,584, Lincoln Home National Historic Site was able to secure the services of a Teacher-Ranger-Teacher to create curriculum-based programs on the history and cultural resources of the park.

Local educator Jenna Glore from Riverton Elementary School was selected as the park’s Teacher-Ranger-Teacher and has worked effectively to support the park’s first participation in this nationwide program. She spent several weeks this summer at Lincoln Home National Historic Site producing three educational lesson plans and supporting materials. These lesson plans will be available for use by the approximately 29,000 students who annually visit the park. Visit here for additional information about our funds at work.
