Olympic National Park
July 9-12, 2019
The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation held our eighth annual Discover Washington: Youth Heritage Project (YHP) in partnership with the National Park Service and the Department of Archaeology & Historic Preservation at Olympic National Park (ONP). ONP gave our students the opportunity to explore the balance between managing cultural, historic, and natural resources within National Parks and designated Wilderness Areas. From muddy adventures in the wilderness to thought-provoking discussions on contemporary controversies, the students at YHP didn’t shy away from tackling tough challenges. The students’ culminating projects provided input and recommendations on a range of real issues currently facing Olympic National Park.
