The National Park Service has opened a $27 million visitor center overlooking the famous “Old Faithful” geyser at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Today’s NYTimes reports on the “cathedral to the shrine of nature.” We can be proud that Lowell is on the same distinguished list of important American places as Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, the Statue of Liberty, Gettysburg, and the Lincoln Monument. Read Edward Rothstein’s article here, and consider buying the NYT if you appreciate the journalism. To see a slide show about the new visitor education center, click on this link from the NYT.
