The National Park Service Outer Banks Group Know Your Park citizen science program series continues again this fall.
On Tuesday, October 7th at 6:30 p.m., Amanda Wright Lane, great grandniece of Wilbur and Orville Wright, will present a program entitled Just Brothers. This program will take place in the auditorium of the Wright Brothers National Memorial Visitor Center. The program is free and will last approximately 1 hour.
This presentation will focus on the relationship between Wilbur and Orville Wright and how that relationship led to the achievement of flight.Additionally, this talk will dive into the often overlooked, but vitally important role the whole Wright family played in their success.
As a Wright family spokesperson, Amanda Wright Lane consults with researchers and academics who are working to preserve the legacy of the Wright brothers, gives lectures on her family's history, and works with federal and state officials in both North Carolina and Ohio to raise awareness for the two national park sites in the United States dedicated to telling the story of the Wright brothers.
The Know Your Park citizen science program series is designed to further connect the Outer Banks communities and residents with the rich natural world and cultural heritage of their neighboring national park sites;Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Wright Brothers National Memorial, and Fort Raleigh National Historic Site."These presentations offer park visitors as well as local residents, an opportunity to learn more about their national parks while focusing on topics that have fascinating coastal environment themes" stated Acting Superintendent Kym Hall.
