Heart Mountain Interpretive Center’s Winter Program Series: Wyoming’s Japanese American Legacy
March 30, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Winter Program Series is an annual series of presentations that take place throughout January, February, and March at the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center.
“Wyoming’s Japanese American Legacy”
(March 30, 1:00-2:00pm)
This year’s final presentation discusses Wyoming’s Japanese American legacy. There is a misconception that there were no Japanese Americans in Northwest Wyoming before Heart Mountain was built. In fact, by the 1940s, many Japanese Americans had deep roots in the state. Join us to learn more about these pioneering families, and how the war and the camp affected their lives.
All events in this series are included with museum admission. Visitors can also purchase a “season pass” for $9 at the interpretive center, which covers admission for all programs.
