2020 Application Open for Youth Heritage Project
It’s happening in Port Townsend in 2020, from July 7th to 10th…
The Washington Trust is pleased to announce that the application for our annual Youth Heritage Project is now open. This year’s program will focus on the recently designated Maritime Washington National Heritage Area, exploring the rich maritime history of Port Townsend and experiencing the coastline by land and by sea from our base at historic Fort Worden.
Youth Heritage Project is all about place-based learning and fun, hands-on activities. This annual interactive field school hosts 40 high school students and eight teachers for four days and three nights, connecting them to historic, cultural, and natural resources in Washington. Thanks to our generous sponsors and partners, we are proud to offer this program FREE OF COST to accepted participants.
All high school-age students are encouraged to apply. Not a high schooler? Help us spread the word about this fun, engaging, and free summer program by sharing this email or the link below with your family members and friends.
