Even though it may be hard to believe, summer is now officially over, which means our fall field trip season is about to begin!

At Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, we continue to honor the legacy of President Roosevelt and his vision for a world based on four essential human freedoms. This year, we dedicate ourselves to celebrating the first pillar of President Roosevelt’s four freedoms: freedom of speech and expression. This essential human right forms the foundation of our democracy. As our event season begins, we look forward to fostering civic engagement through a slate of programs emphasizing the importance of free speech.
