Description

Rock Creek Park has been fortunate to have strong leadership from women as the park's superintendents over the decades. Georgia Ellard became the first Black woman to serve in this highest position of national park administration in 1983, breaking barriers and setting a clear path forward for others in the National Park Service, and the National Capital Region more specifically. Other women have joined the ranks serving as superintendents in the time since, supporting the park's vision to protect the bountiful natural and cultural beauty of Rock Creek.

A virtual conversation exploring the history of women in park leadership, part of a series of opportunities to explore race and history in Rock Creek Park, is organized by Rock Creek Park and Rock Creek Conservancy. The event will feature a conversation with Georgia Ellard; Tara Morrison, ROCR Superintendent from 2011-2016, and current Superintendent of National Capital Parks - East; and Julia Washburn, Rock Creek Park's current Superintendent since 2017.
