Long-Range Interpretive Plan
The Long-Range Interpretive Plan (LRIP) includes foundational elements (e.g., purpose, significance, interpretive themes, audience experience goals) and recommendations for personal and non-personal services throughout the park and for partnerships that support the delivery of the interpretive, education and visitor services program. The Plan also provides guidance for commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Appomattox Campaign, surrender and onset of Reconstruction.
