Philip Conkling Appointed to International Park Commission
President Barack Obama has appointed Island Institute President and Founder Philip Conkling to serve as an Alternate Member of the Roosevelt Campobello International Park Commission.
After eighteen days into the new season, the number of visitors coming to the park is up by nearly thirty percent. The increase over 2009 is likely due to a number of factors. Improved weather, more folks having passports, increased marketing have all contributed to the increase.
Visitors are enjoying the tour of the Roosevelt Cottage, they are viewing the exhibits and the film in the Visitor's Centre, many are driving the carriage roads just as the Roosevelts did at the turn of the century. The hiking trails are all clear and open.
Saturday saw the opening of the Visitor Centre and the Roosevelt Cottage. The guides were all in place,escorted visitors and told the story of FDR and his "Beloved Island."
Saturday posted a near doubling of the number of visitors over last years opening day. The trend continued the entire wekend with a substantial increase in visitors.
The Visitor Centre and the Roosevelt Cottage are open seven days a week from 9am Eastern Time/10am Atlantic Time to 5pm Eastern and 6pm Atlantic.
