Join us for a free Town Hall event, the culmination of our week-long Youth Heritage Project!

The Youth Heritage Project (YHP) is a four-day immersive field school connecting high school students to our state’s historic, cultural, and natural resources, in order to nurture the next generation of Washington’s advocates and activists. This year’s YHP will take 40 students from across Washington State to Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve on Whidbey Island from July 16-19. YHP activities and programming will address topics related to the Maritime Washington National Heritage Area, including maritime history and contemporary culture, Tribal Canoe Journeys, the effects of sea level rise upon historic resources (such as the Coupeville Wharf), and more.

At the conclusion of the week, on Friday, July 19 from 1:00-3:00 pm at Camp Casey’s Auditorium A (1276 Engle Road, Coupeville), our YHP students will present their findings, recommendations, and projects to the public. A panel of cultural resource management professionals will also be on hand to offer encouragement and feedback to the students as they make their presentations. Please join us! No registration or ticket is required.
