You are here

March 24-26, 2015

The joint DOE/NPS team meets in Oak Ridge in the first of three site visits. The group does a day-long tour of the Oak Ridge Reservation’s three sites, visiting the “eligible areas” for inclusion in the park as cited in the Defense act. The team also has several opportunities to meet and get to know the community and its leaders. The park service members receive an especially warm and appreciative welcome as the first visible sign of the new park.
