SPECIAL FROM JIMMY CARTER NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE
PLAINS, Ga. (April 21, 2015)--From a very early age, President Jimmy Carter held an appreciation for the natural world that surrounded him on his father’s 360-acre farm. Growing up without electricity, President Carter would have witnessed many wonderful and crystal clear views of the night sky. To celebrate National Park Week as well as participate in the National Park Service’s Centennial “Find Your Park” campaign, we are excited to host our first ever astronomy event at the Jimmy Carter Boyhood Farm.
