RICHLAND, Wash. (AP) - A meeting on the new Manhattan Project National Historical Park is scheduled in Kennewick next Thursday.

Federal officials on Tuesday will have a signing ceremony in Washington, D.C., to establish the new national park, which will include Hanford’s historic B Reactor.

The Tri-City Herald says the park will also include Manhattan Project facilities at Los Alamos, New Mexico, and Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

The Manhattan Project National Historical Park will be part of a small percentage of national parks focusing on science and technology.

Hanford for decades made plutonium for nuclear weapons, including the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, during World War II.

The public can learn more about the park at Visit Tri-Cities’ tourism showcase and annual meeting from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. next Thursday in Kennewick.
