WBWW is Looking for Local Seniors to Interview for Wolf Bay Environmental Heritage Project
This project will provide readers with insight into important conditions and local attitudes concerning the bay, creeks, and wildlife resources in the Wolf Bay watershed and surrounding areas. First-hand reports of the historical environmental health of the area and the traditional uses (and exploitation) of natural resources (including the forests, wildlife, aquatic life, and the land) will provide a greater understanding of existing conditions in the watershed. This will facilitate better planning for potential restoration and preservation activities, as well as for future uses of these resources and land. Planning for the future of Wolf Bay should include consideration of local traditional land and water resource uses and this project may make the information more accessible to local citizens, government agencies, and developers.
We envision distributing the oral history to schools, museums, local officials, libraries, civic groups, etc. We may be able to produce a booklet, film, Power Point presentation, and/or CD, and make them available on our Website.
We will be partnering with the Baldwin Co. Heritage Museum. We need volunteers to conduct interviews, scan and document items for preservation, type up interviews, etc. If you are interested or would like to make a donation to defray costs of this project, please contact Liz.
