Utah - Intermountain Regional Office
Closed! Preserving the Past: Archive Management
Not the real Archives!
March 7-11, 2016
Must commit to full session
Join us this spring as we dive into the history collection from Region 4 of the Intermountain Office! The collection is comprised of Ranger diaries, grazing records, land atlases, timber reports, photographs, maps, and other fascinating articles. PIT volunteers and FS staff will gather at the Intermountain Region’s headquarters in the James V. Hansen Federal Building, located on Ogden's Historic 25th Street, to catalog and curate these items. The office is just steps away from great restaurants, fine galleries, and some terrific shopping. In fact, come for the project, then stay the weekend to enjoy some spring skiing or to explore local museums – see you in March!
