CONNECTING THE CHILDREN OF YESTERDAY WITH THE CHILDREN OF TODAY

The goal of the Heritage Foundation's Education department is to ignite a passion in the leaders of tomorrow to love, advocate, and support local history and preservation efforts!

We will do this through partnering with local school leaders, producing in-house curriculum, hosting after-school programs and summer schools, activating engaging field trips, and providing meaningful professional development and continued learning opportunities.

Educate Your Aspiring Preservationists as We Celebrate Preservation Month this May!
