We are SO excited to announce the latest addition to the #YEW event calendar this year: our FIRST ever historic preservation scavenger hunt!!!
We’ve teamed up with the Tacoma Historic Preservation Department, the Children’s Museum of Tacoma, and Stadium High School students have donated their talents by doing a class project in which they learned about and photographed (sneak peek of those shots below!) historically intriguing and architecturally significant buildings and structures throughout Tacoma in a fun and engaging look at their surroundings, identifying how these structures make a difference in our community.
This adventure is FREE and open to all who like a good challenge, have an eagle’s eye for spotting treasure, and a passion for historic adventures!
Enroll online with the City Of Tacoma Historic Preservation Department or at either photo display location (mentioned above) starting on Friday, April 10 thru Friday, May 1st – come join the fun! There’s no time to waste – sign-up now:
