The National Park System contains more than parks that preserve incredible landscapes or moments in history. There are many units that honor an individual. Today National Parks Traveler takes a look at a national monument in southwest Missouri dedicated to George Washington Carver. 

Born to an enslaved young woman, Carver dedicated his life to agricultural research and science.  His work helped struggling farmers in the south better their lives through better farming practices. The Traveler’s Lynn Riddick talks to Ranger Curtis Gregory about this unique site in the park system, and the inspirational legacy of the 20th century’s most renowned Black scientist.
