Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park has a new chief of interpretation and resource management. Stacy Humphreys, former supervisory park ranger at the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial (St. Louis Arch, in St. Louis, Mo.), has worked more than 11 years for the National Park Service. She took over the position in September.
A group of dedicated volunteers helped clean and spruce up the grounds of the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park on April 27.
About 20 people braved the gray skies and threatening rain to clean out the boxwood beds by the Memorial Building steps, and remove sticks, leaves and old mulch from around trees. They finished all of the work just as rain began to fall.
