If you want to volunteer to help Houghton County’s historical records recover from the devastating flooding, now’s the time!
The Michigan Museums Association (MMA) is working with the Keweenaw National Historical Park, the Michigan Archival Association, and other organizations to recruit teams of trained museum and archives professionals who will provide onsite help a week at a time this summer and early fall. These teams will document the artifact and archival collections and establish stable temporary storage conditions.
Final details for the project are still being solidified, but will depend somewhat on the availability of trained volunteers. If you are qualified, interested, and able to spend a week in the Keweenaw Peninsula in August or September, please complete this survey by July 23.
At this point, the plan is to have a team arriving on Sunday, working a regular work-week Mon-Fri, and then leaving on Saturday.
