Heritage Expeditions



"I have been taking classes for 20 years and this is the best I have ever attended". "The effort to make this possible is outstanding, much more than I could have imagined".
-- Comments from past participants.
2007 Expeditions

Heritage Expeditions are educational programs about historic and prehistoric sites and skills.  Many historic and prehistoric sites are disappearing through the ravages of time. Future generations deserve the chance to see and understand them too. The goal of Heritage Expeditions is to provide opportunities for the public to learn about and help conserve non-renewable heritage resources, and for fees from those experiences to fund protection and continued public access to those sites. Fees collected on Heritage Expeditions will be used to protect and manage historic and prehistoric sites for the public. Your fees will buy materials to restore historic structures for public use, support volunteer programs like Passport In Time that are aimed at protection of heritage resources, support American Indian interns learning historic preservation skills, and preserve sites that are visited by hundreds of people every year.
