George Washington Carver National Monument

DIAMOND, Mo. – The National Park Service says due to the current health situation, Carver Day 2020, scheduled for July 11, 2020, has been canceled.

Carver Day celebrates the George Washington Carver National Monument. Each year it’s held, it features programs interpreting the life and legacy of George Washington Carver. Guest speakers, musical groups, a Junior Ranger station, and exhibitors are also included.

“George Washington Carver National Monument is the birthplace and childhood home of the famed scientist, educator and humanitarian. Established in 1943, it is the first unit of the National Park Service dedicated to an African American. The park also protects 140 acres of restored tallgrass prairie.”
