Kick off National Park Week by meeting Teddy Roosevelt
Teddy Roosevelt is arguably one of America’s most beloved and admired presidents. After taking the oath of office in 1901, Roosevelt used his authority to protect wildlife and approximately 230 million acres of public lands.
No one embodies the spirit of Roosevelt better than Joe Wiegand who portrays our 26th president in the new IMAX film, National Parks Adventure 3D. A 1987 political science graduate of Sewanee–University of the South, Wiegand capped a 25-year career in public policy and political campaigns to take his show on the road.
In advance of National Park Week, the Teddy Roosevelt Show will make a special stop in the Scenic City Thursday evening. Wiegand will introduce a special screening of the film, then deliver a rousing reprisal of Roosevelt after the film.
