Spring 2012 Forum Journal: Beyond Boundaries in the Inland and Pacific Northwest 

12-21-2017 18:33

​This issue of the Forum Journal takes you to the Pacific Northwest—an area with a rich history and breathtaking scenery, and the setting for the National Preservation Conference in October. Stephanie Toothman, associate director for Cultural Resources at the National Park Service, provides an overview of the region based on her years with the National Park Service in the Pacific Northwest. Congressman John Garamendi offers a personal perspective about his efforts to save the Monte Wolfe Cabin in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the need to protect and preserve heritage resources in the wilderness. You will also learn more about the city of Spokane and the greening a former railroad facility into a new headquarters for the McKinstry Company.  Other articles focus on the Maxville Heritage Center in Oregon, renewable energy in the Northwest and its impact on historic resources, innovative strategies to bring locally produced foods to Main Streets, and preserving cultural landscapes of importance to Native American tribes.
