"The heritage of SR-202 is rooted in the entrepreneurial spirit, from Native American trade to timber and farming, to contemporary trade, high-tech, and tourism.
"Our heritage is a history of industry and enterprise, building a life for our families in a land of beauty. As our communities move through change, we remain rooted in the natural, historical, and entrepreneurial heritage of this place we choose to call home."
The mission of the SR-202 Heritage Corridor Advisory Group is to find ways to capture, interpret, and promote the heritage resources of the communities and the routes that connect them.
"Now that we have a direction, we can begin to try to draw in more involvement," Julien said.
Kay Reinartz, from the Office of Cultural Resources, echoed Julien's sentiments. "They're very welcome, we need all the help we can get," she said. There is a variety of work to be done, including taking pictures and walking the routes, she noted. "The people are really enthusiastic."
To date, 25 people are on the committees and 70 on the mailing list. The group is also looking for temporary office space along the corridor.
