Only two weeks left for students and teachers to apply to attend Discover Washington: Youth Heritage Project (YHP) at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, July 15-18, 2015.
Working with the National Park Service and the Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation, this year's program will explore the early settlement of the American West, the process and significance of archeological excavation, and the merits of reconstruction as a method of historic preservation. We’ve also got a campout and a canoe ride planned, so we’ll have plenty of fun while we learn!
