All Three SessionsThe U.S. 250th anniversary, coming up in 2026, is a crucial opportunity to engage the public in the full sweep of American history. But for many history doers, this is easier said than done. How do you interpret the U.S. 250th at your site or organization, especially if you don’t have an obvious connection to the Revolutionary era? Even if you do have a clear tie to the Revolution, how do you make that history relevant to your audiences? This three-part webinar series will offer best practices in interpretive planning, connections to fieldwide themes for the 250th, and the chance to find inspiration and workshop ideas with fellow practitioners.Attend one, two, or all three webinars. A discount is available to attend all three sessions.

Scholarships to attend all three webinars are available on a first come, first served basis. This scholarship is made possible by support from the Classical American Homes Preservation Trust.
