Woven in Time: the Cultural Heritage & Historical Ecology of the Elkhorn Slough incorporates interactive technology, audio recordings, and historical images and artifacts. The new exhibit weaves stories from native peoples, early Spaniards, and current neighbors together with recorded ecological changes. It also features recordings from the Elkhorn Slough Reserve’s oral history project, including interviews with local farmers, families, and neighbors. These stories complement journal entries, news articles, and other historical artifacts dating back to the 1700s.
This event is supported by a Humanities for All Project Grant.
