Creek Watershed Rivers Conservation Plan calls for cultural conservation
in the form of Oral Histories – collecting the memories,
experiences, and insights of persons long resident in or acquainted
with the Pine Creek watershed.
Council developed a large list of potential interview subjects.
During 2006 as many as available funding from the Rivers Conservation
Plan grant would allow were interviewed on and off camera. Their
interviews provide a glimpse into many aspects of life in the
funding will allow additional acquisition of oral histories. The
Council also seeks to encourage and inspire oral history collection
in the watershed as part of regular academic programs at all levels.
