The Art in the Park program started in 2014 and has been a success from the beginning. Pacific Historic Parks (PHP) provided funding to continue this program for fiscal year 2016-2017. Funding from the National Park Service augmented the budget enabling us to further enhance the program.
One of the most recent service-learning events I led was titled Project of Preservation. High school student volunteers assisted in cleaning and maintaining historical artifacts owned by the park. Students worked alongside park rangers to learn about and how to care for historical objects.
We couldn’t do it without our volunteers.
Pacific Historic Parks and the National Park Service recently won the People’s Choice Award at the first annual UnderWater World Tasi Conservation Expo, held Oct. 1.
