Discover Washington: Youth Heritage Project

Presented in partnership with the National Park Service and the Washington State Department of Archaeology & Historic Preservation, the Discover Washington: Youth Heritage Project (YHP) is a 4-day (overnight) interactive field school that engages high school students and teachers by connecting them to historic, cultural, and natural resources. YHP is designed to introduce historic preservation to a younger generation - future leaders that will work to save the places that matter. Through grant funding, sponsorships, and contributions, we offer YHP free of cost to all participants, and we recruit a diverse student population from across the state.
