Why should you join us at the Place-Based Learning Conference?

One reason is that you’ll get a chance to hear the professional techniques of some of Montana’s best teachers. The Heritage Project’s demonstration site directors regularly prepare their students to deliver stirring academic performances before large audiences at our annual Youth Heritage Festival at the state capitol.

And if that isn’t enough, you might come for the music. Montana’s widely known musical group, Dublin Gulch--named for a Butte landscape–will offer a concert of the Butte Irish music they’ve been gathering and performing for many years.

Lodging is available at the Red Lion in Butte. More economical dorm rooms may also be booked. Most sessions will be held on the campus of Montana Tech.
