As an Anchor Organization to the “Maritime Washington – National Heritage Area” we’re excited to see this public workshop opportunity! Join us for an educational and interesting time.


THURSDAY – MAY 6th – 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Through polls, group discussions and interactive features, Maritime Washington – National Heritage Area program staff will seek public engagement in discovering how best Maritime Washington – NHA could help serve the needs and futures of our unique waterfront communities.

During the main part of the workshop you’ll be able to share through polls, small group discussions, and other interactive activities. Workshop will focus on regional needs, priorities, goals and community takes and suggestions. 

Managed by the nonprofit Washington Trust for Historic Preservation, MW-NHA works to build partnerships and increase collaboration in order to support our coastal communities in celebrating, maintaining, and sharing their water-based stories.

Over the next year Washington’s MW-NHA program will be working with coastal communities to chart a course for the MW-NHA based on community engagements. Throughout the first half of 2021, there will be lots of opportunities for waterfront citizens to share their views and ideas through virtual workshops, surveys, social media, focus groups,and more. These collaborative efforts will culminate in a MW-NHA management plan, which will serve as a framework for how we’ll work together for Washington’s maritime futures.
