Thanks to such enthusiastic responses to this event, as of Friday, 09/30 we have changed the event location and the RSVP deadline has been extended. Changes are reflected below:

"The National Parks: America's Best Idea" is CSUN's event to celebrate the National Park Services Centennial. This town-hall style event will feature several CSUN alumni, each of whom holds a prominent position in the National Parks system.  "There is a huge need in the national parks for diversity, and CSUN is well positioned to encourage students to consider careers in the national parks," said Mechelle Best, Chair of the Department of Recreation & Tourism Management. "The national parks are for the public good; this land has been protected in the interest of the country and we need to get more people outside."

The event is supported by the CSUN Distinguished Visiting Speakers Program and the Center for Recreation & Tourism. The reception and town-hall will take place Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at 6:30 P.M. in the Johnson Auditorium in Jacaranda Hall. Seating is limited-- so RSVP to or call 818-677-3202 by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, October 3.
