Who's come to join us or other. I'm expecting a lot of other. And then where are you from. I can't put every location in here. So what i did is a break. The united states up a little bit and then gave some spots for some of our people who are in other places and then how did you hear about mobility matters. What brought you here was at a ph was at portland state. Was it social media. What did that for you so a little. Bit of housekeeping type. Any questions use the check. Change your to to all panelists and attendees that way. Everyone can see what people are writing and can understand. If they're question already was asked. We are so happy to have you with us today because polls can be challenging for people who use screen leaders. I'm going to end it now. It's okay if you could not answer it. No problem going to share out. That thirty four percent are teachers students with visual impairments. Thirty three percent orientation mobility instructors and believe it or not some of those are both and we have twenty nine percent students in k twelve system. Awesome ten percent students in a college program where you are from our biggest group. No surprise to me is the northwest united states at forty percent. We are so glad you can join us.

We're very interested in how accessible this learning conference may be so we would very much like your opinion about that at universities. We sometimes study. What makes learning effective. That's part of our job. So dr holly lawson who i mentioned to you is also interested in if you received those tackle floor plans of those three d. printed Tools to access the learning if you received a printed math which was created a to d printed map. That was created by steve lowery. I'm holding up line in my camera view right now if you receive some other materials such as seeds or a straw even from apa. Some of you have been asking me. What is that thing. That i received that looks like a little cylinder. Is it a flashlight. Well some of our students who will be leading the event today figured out what it was. It's a portable straw. It's one of the gifts from a phd. You today so that you can have a strong with no matter where you travel so you could figure out how that straw works a little later so some of you are telling me also that you may not have received materials in time. Please don't worry. We know that there were several weather delays in the united states. Because of poor weather so please just stay with us. We do have a materials up on our website. Hopefully you will receive those packets in the mail if you didn't already but again even if you never received a packet you should use your imagination state.

Wait it almost looks as if it is coming. Through the wooden salk awol the stockade stops on either side of the bake house because the big house has two enormous ovens for baking the ovens were placed outside the fort walls to prevent a fire there from consuming the entire fort after leaving the bake house. Use the first intersecting pathway that heads south and moved down your map. Blacksmith shop is the building closest to the southeast or bottom right corner of the fort to enter.

The residents of the four people who look there received medical care on the western side of the building. We enter a trade room before doctor also managed to trade shop. The walls are lined with shelves full of blankets dishes. Ask hits and other items that could be traded for furs. I'm going to pause for just a moment on our tour here. I've noticed a couple of questions in the chat pop up and to clarify five or folks. The visuals that are being shown on our slides alternate between a picture of the tactile map which shows the basically the outside of the fort kind of a bird's eye view and then every other picture is a photograph of her. A little thing were mentioned so it'll be mort and our next stop on. This tour is the first store which is the next building to the west or to the left of the indian trade shop in hospital.

It's okay if you couldn't get to it even in the poll. Almost everyone said a carpenter saw. Were they right. Megan yup that's very Tracy also mentioned this. Is amy speaking. What kind of smell would you have smelled in the carpenters room. The carpenter station would have definitely been the smoke sawdust on that saw dustin would right which might everyone earthy smell summer saying right. It might have been a sweet. Woody smell in the carpenter's station. Great all right next question. Okay question number to listen to the sound to from curator megan's tour of fort vancouver. What area of the fort is this sound associated with is it a the garden b. e. the bake house see the jail. Or d the blacksmiths shop. We've got lots coming in lots of ways in the garden in the chat. Let's see if they're the same as what's coming in the poll gonna end it and share. Wow ninety three percent said the garden how they do okay. We're getting ready for question number. Three in the tour there were some words used that we don't hear as often in modern types. What do you think the word scullery meets. Where is the scullery at fort vancouver. We want you to choose the most correct answer. A a scullery is a garden. Shed that we would find near the fourth guarded. Be a scullery cash register that we would find in the fort's counting house see a scullery as a place for washing dishes. That would be found in the kitchen. A scullery as a place that holds the fort's ceremonial cannon. Couple different choices coming in the chat. I'm still a couple different choices. Still in the chat. I'm gonna end the poll and we'll see what the says because the chat was kind of all over the place so in the poll. It looks like see was chosen. The quite a few chosen d. c. was the washing dishes in the big house and d was the place that holds the ceremonial cannon. And that's about what i was seeing in the chat. What's the right answer. The iranian syria is that the story is a place for washing dishes. In the fort's kitchen and it will say that. When i was young probably about twelve or thirteen a volunteer at an event at for bank oover is before i worked there and i was in the kitchen in the scullery washing dishes and it was very hard and it made me appreciate dishwashers hard worked wash dishes that this is absolutely right. Amy speaking here. You've heard the term may be when you read about a scullery maid will now you'll know what a scullery maid is. Usually a woman worked in the kitchen washing dishes in. That was big task. Thanks for sharing that here. Eight okay. I question for another word. That curator making used was fast. You what is a bastion is a the chief. Factors house was also called the best. Be a three story military or signaling tower see a small jail used to detain rule-breakers criminals or d a one or two room cabin where employees of the hudson's bay company lift lots of answers coming into chat a variety of them though starting to see more pe- in the chat aboard poll a few more minutes seconds. Okay let's end it and share. Most people picked be a three storey military tower. Is that correct. That is correct and you. After number at some ford's a bastion might be used for military purposes. But for for being cooper was not in military ford so for being couvert the bastion was mostly used for welcoming other ships and signaling signaling tower. Part about question five okay. Finally a another word you heard today is the word palisade based on the tour of the fort. You just listen to. What does the word palisade me. A a place where maritime travelers purchase seabiscuit. S- be a three story. high tower. See a small jail used to detain rule breakers and criminals de offense of wooden stakes or tree. Trunks fixed in the ground forming an enclosure or defense. Palisade got a few choices in the chat. Okay a few more. Come in no in the poll. It looks like most of you said a d. -fensive a wooden stakes are trucks. The student the ground forming closure or vets. Where they right is that is and it's a little bit. Tricky busy me of also redmi say stockade wall and you may hear books from the national party policies need or sake but it means the same thing that that fence that goes all the way around the forest. Well done everybody. This is amy. Thank you so much for playing that fantastic trivia game for listening to the sounds. Thank you for adding the sounds curator. Megan to the imported tour. We did have some feedback that for some people who don't have their maps with them that some times following along on the map was challenging. We have maybe just one minute or two minutes for a couple of questions. I will kick us off with One quick question and it relates to the orientation using the math the bastion the the military or ceremonial tower where the cannon was curator megan. What shape is that. Is that a hexagon shape. Or is it an octagon. I couldn't figure out that it's that that high part of the tower that's very distinctive on the ford. It has a really interesting shape and position. Can you talk about the shape of the bastion. It does have a You that i'm not short a hexa garnering arctic. What if my other national park folks by added the in a chat the answer to that question but it is not perfectly bound. It has It does have sides to it. Yeah it looks this is. Amy looks kind of like a hexagon to me. So we have some questions. Coming in to chat at somewhat is answering. It is an octagon on top. There's a square on the bottom. This is wonderful okay. So we're going to read. The questions allowed a question from a third grader. Is how big are the canons. I am also going to feel that up to my staff as well. I'm not a candidate for and you know while they answer that i did see that there was a question about if the offense was original. That house seder stocky while and that is It is not a bit. The fort was rebuilt. It was burned down in the eighteen sixties. After the hudson's bay company had left when this area became part of the united states. The british hudson's bay company with up to canada and the fort was abandoned and this area became part of the barrett's and eventually the fort was burned down. And it was rebuilt in the nineteen sixties and seventies but it was rebuilt on the archaeological footprint of the original fort. So where are you. See or being huber. Today is a building is yes so where you know. You're in your house where where your houses that of the footprint of the house when they did the archaeological excavations of the fort they were able to find out where where all the buildings were where the palisade wall was and they reconstructed it was. And they see that. Bob cromwell who is one of our archaeologists commented are in the chat about the the candidates size. So i can. I can read that that he says barrels are about five feet long and the carriages are a bad the carriages. What the cannon sits on so the barrel is the metal part of the canon. that's about five feet long. Some of you might be about five feet tall so you can imagine and the carriages are the wooden things that the metal cannon sits on and the carriages are about three feet by four feet at about two feet tall. So they're they're pretty big alright and that's all the questions we have for this time. We're about to go into a break but before we do that. Thank you again. Curator at mr lowery. For your time we will be breaking out into different rooms where you can ask more questions about the canons. About the work of blacksmiths.

What historic for the with logic extensive fruit. Which is those garcia valuables volunteer been carrying. I'm walking down the main garden on womb sums day before the garden today is a half acre garden and it's located in the wrong spot where the garden was was on the other side of the roadway. Which is one hundred percent accurate. The garden in the eighteen forty s was approximately seven to eight acres and it ran all the way out to the orchard. Today's garden is over half an acre designed in the same principles that the garden was. The pass aren't nearly as wide because the past in the original garden were wide enough to have them bring a wagon down with With water to water the garden our paths would scarred and represents exactly what they did and grew in a garden in the eighteen forties. Does he takes from basket. A corn on the cob not a large data if you hold sees as we also see a colored sketch of roots cellars and the eighteen hundreds when she tells us about tobacco. There's an image of agreement tobacco that we see quite leaves in between styles of beaver pelts. So what else are you that we've just recently. Dug up was potatoes and corn. Which is coming on right now and the potatoes will be kept in the root cellar here. The even had one root cellar was a potato cellar that they would store the potatoes. In throughout the winter months it was located alongside the roadway here and corn. We often think of nice. Fresh years corn they would have the freshman ward but they would also do parched corn or roasted corn or dry corn. Which was it'd be milled and use a for all types of porridge of corn bread and just a meal that they would have to put into their to make cakes or things like that with another couple of interesting things that we grow in. The garden is an echo. Shawna or baco dartmouth did grow it here. It was well known that they would drive the tobacco leaves and put it in between the bales of the beaver pelts when they would shoot them back to england to make beaver hats. It prevented the Insights from eating holes in the pills would make a useless when they got to england. Now we see in gross costumes with pedals then. Some white fluffy cotton while. That's he picks. Caution photo shows this move colored fizzle and loon then hanky red dwarf pomegranate fruit blackish fix and yet quint's on. It's another interesting thing that we grow in the gardens cotton. Most people have never seen cotton-growing unless you live in the south or the south west. But we've grown. Dr mclaughlin grew it and we want to stay where he grew We've had some success in some years. We haven't justices. All farming and gardening is some other interesting things we have on. The property is cartoon Which is fissile in the fissile family and we would eat the stock the spine of the leaf and not necessarily the choke. Like you. think of an artichoke. Although there in the same family we also have holograms dwarf pomegranates. In the garden we have fig trees in the garden with figs on that they had We had quences that. Were very very common in europe in the eighteen. Most people don't know what they are. They're they're also an apple or repairs of like that but we do use have been demonstrated many historical kitchen to of hops. That's he mentions. Next is an obviously over paint. Gum off phones chief from green of arms which events in bugged about foul followed by a photo of of sliced white bread as you came through the garden today. He walked through the tunnel of hops. And the hop sir just getting to flower nail and they'll be ripening up. It'd probably about two weeks. It was used in distilling in also as a eleven or we have tested it and used it to make eleven such as of for making bread as like a yeast in it works very well kinda gives it a just a tiny bit of almost a beer taste to the bread. Okay great. that's the video. Lee mc everyone I'm an archaeologist with the national park service and the garden is one of my favorite places to spend one of my favorite places to investigate Oregon check right now and see. I don't see that there's any questions in the chat right now. We'll try to keep up with that and There are questions sophia. Bridget healy Hopefully we'll be able to help with goes so i guess we need to. I still don't see any questions so we need to show okay. We are showing On the screen the garden tactile map.

So south is the opposite at the bottom end toward you with west to the left and east to the right as you may have noticed. the garden. Area is divided in half lengthwise by the middle garden path which runs straight north and south and the north and south access points to the garden shortsighted past the end you the outside edges of the garden rent east and west outward from the middle garden path. These smaller site pests. Divide the garden into sixteen larger planting areas or plots and give gardeners to lance within each fought to plots to the north are designed with circular paths. Which you should be able to to feel on your math. You can find a rectangular brench benches on your tactile map which are located at the north and south ends of the garden. At the north end of the garden you will find entry shrubs on your mouth bay around and pointed at line. Both sides of the middle path near the benches at the south end of their map is the would post in the center of the middle path.

I would be part so today's garden demonstrates meaning sustainable practices that were used several centuries ago. I'll mr be right. Fine boy observe reading. Today's guarding demonstrates ninety sustainable practices. That were used several centuries ago at fort vancouver close. yeah are still route. Relevance and environmentally healthy today larger historical biden was invited into separate are separate areas for plants by designing the garden. Space this way. Dr mclaughlin was able to select and strategically grew plan. Plan based on plant needs for soil composition watering amount of sun and pollination bridge known for me low again so native plants the plants existing before the settlers arrived were sometimes used by the settlers for food and medicine. Native plants are adapted to the climate and provide less upkeep in water while attracting local birds and insects such as ease for pollination today. We should try to integrate native plants around our homes when possible using knowledge of which plants were better companions to the more vulnerable plants gardeners were able to ward off. Problem insects while attracting beneficial ones crops. Such as beets cabbage and potatoes retain their quality over a long period of time. Farmers rotated crops allowing time for soil to recover referred to his fallow and used. Livestock manure compost and fertilize the soil before its residents composted. Food scraps garden waste manure fish carcasses and so forth to add an array of vital nutrients back into the gardens soil. Straw fallen tree leaves and natural compost used to mulch. Soil beds protect plants from winter. Frosts today we should today. We should use natural turnovers and avoid using chemical pest control and chemical fertilizers. These chemicals can pollute waterways. Farm animals burn crops. Increase air pollution acidify soil and deplete soil of minerals. Early settlers work with the natural resources available to them to be self sustaining to meet their needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. So now we're going to do a activity and i would like to have three different people in our audience. Try to name one. Sustainable practice used in. The historical garden is also used today. You could put this in your answers in shop. Let's see the answers yet in a few minutes. I'll here's a good one. Rotate the garden beds. I see natural fertilization of the soil Livestock manure to repeat the question. So i'm going to do that. Dame want sustainable practice used in historical garden that is also used. Today tro composting fish. Carcasses muddying the soil fallow robin different using different crops rotation worms. So that's interesting wasn't mentioned but it's definitely a good good answer compost kalpa so we. Everyone has several great answers. So now sofia going to discuss the artifacts of the darden endure on Sophia we can see you but we there you go now we can hear you. Thank you go ahead. We will conclude our visits to the garden today by talking about the artifacts that many of you received in your learning kits that fourth thing hoover plants native to the area were used for food medicine. Seats were introduced at the fort from london and were planted in the garden. Seeds for farming were distributed to families traveling the oregon trail on their way to start their own homesteads for hoover would share their seats with settlers road and use than your own barton's crop how of having quality scene was extremely important to settlers. They carefully saved planted and shared seeds in the spirit and tradition of several words. We off so have been practicing seeds. Saving and wish to share with you are authentic old fashioned seeds from plants race in the courts garnered and care for them. He come dry until you are ready to plant them when you are ready refer directions included with your seats so you may help carry on the tradition of four vancouver menu have a successful yield. Thanks afia going to look at some pictures of flowers and vegetables. Erste have Marigolds bright yellow and orange and reddish flowers. They are a good companion plant for several other types of vegetables keeps the insects.

This is a picture of green bean pods that produced whitish beans with dark spots tigers. I lack valentine rattlesnake or three different varieties of green games. Okay so what happened with the vegetables from the garden. The fruits from orchards and the grains from the field crops many different jobs at the fort contributed to making available the foods and ingredients that the bakers used for to prepare their baked dishes and the cooks the chief factors kitchen used to feed the many officers clerks and guests. A lot of the labor in the garden and fields was provided by local indigenous. People sometimes whole families would come to work allowing them to trade for items. In the hudson's bay company's indian trade saw farmers gardeners seeds men in other labourers with manage the garden orchard and fields. They would be plowing sowing watering spreading compost and caring for plants so they would grow steersman farmers and other laborers would ten livestock fertilized soil and replenish nutrients. Tradesmen such as back. Smith's and carpenters would make or repair farm equipment skilled laborers round the flour mill which was used to refine the wheat. Barley inquired into flowers and corn meals after harvesting there would be cutting bundling transporting processing and even packaging in story. There will always jobs that needed attention. I don't know if we have time just for questions from the talent. Amy speaking we actually are running a little bit short on time so we can move into the be kaos house now. Thank you sophia leap. Bridget thank you with lane or your leadership and if it is okay to go off your it is okay to go off camera now and go on youtube while we get megan jake Henry on to lead the next portion of the tour. And if you have questions at the end you may have questions about the garden. Were bake house at the end of. We wanna give time for the next team. Okay whenever the team is ready to start the tour of the house and i will advance the slides and play the video when you are ready one. Welcome to the big for vancouver. My name is jake in.

Thank you in trade for business. Fleiss by eighteen forty five farming and agriculture was a major part of the work at fourteen couvert and most of the employees worked on the farm rather than in virtually farm production contributed to the processes wealth. I'll think to reduce the amount of food that was brought in from elsewhere in addition thousands of settlers in the area that needed food supplies because this tablets there dr john mclaughlin held many hungry american settlers. They here from oregon trail right. And that concludes the video mega anything you would like to add or do we have any questions in the so. I just want to emphasize the biggest lists such an important building of the fort. The people who worked at for being cougar who were called servants of the hudson's bay company relied on biscuits from the fake house as part of their rations. And in the in a chat. Acce- elaine but a bit explanation of of the rations. What a hudson's bay company employees would get two feet themselves and their family mostly themselves and the basis daily ration for each servant in eighteen forty one included one and a half pounds of biscuit and on top about seabiscuit. Were provided to visiting ships and for trappers heading out on trapping expeditions. The because would have been producing tons and tons of food for the people here. Okay if you receive a tactile learning kit. Today's to take out the sweetie Four point of the big shots an image of the model and folded left inside on the big along street. When you have here for ready all that so that the diamond shaped arrow in the copper corner is pointing to your left. The era indicate what direction is not but we will be looking at this room as we are facing east. The neat feature in this room is of the community model. Next era these are the brick ovens couch there is arch at the base of the them by title for books expires. This heathy of above the fire the distance. Are you other things to point out on your three model. He entrance to the building is on the west wall closest you. It's represented by raised. Red thankful in on either side of the door represent windows. The cast is a to start building and you can find the location of the stairs to the second floor me at the north winds on the left. A large work table is near the center of the room. The room into our storage unit used for flower set in the bottom right or south west corner. Megan could you tell us a little a little more about the work that was done in this room so in this room. Three to four baker's work long hours in front of these massive twin ovens preparing bread and biscuit or hundreds of company employees the ovens needed to be stoked intended around the clock to ensure a consistent temperature so today we can set our ovens or three hundred fifty degrees or whatever we need but back then they needed to work to maintain that temperature for things to properly. And it's possible that at least one of the bakers lived in the buildings added to make sure the big house will always operating just as bakers to day of acres again. We're very early in the morning in order to give any leavened bread to rise anything you are visit to house today by talking about the artifacts that menu bbc arctic fox painting workshop are being shared on screen. Some of you received t packet a small paper on a little with one ounce of loose tea or leaf tea as well as the heaton. A metal fill which is a metal tin filled with twenty individual. Teabags meghan can utility anymore about these artifacts in where they can absolutely so we have as you heard already up. You defensive tease loose in seven teabags. And you re remember from the video that seabiscuit made innovate house. Were very hard. And you might have remembered hearing the word heart attack which is another word for a seat biscuits. So they were. They were very hard and difficult to eat lane. And not very good to eat. So they would offend soaked in t- soup or greece to help. Soften or enslave them and you might also remember might have been in the video that seabiscuit are just made by our waters which isn't very young so adding them to t- like a tease that you received a summer of you or soup with help give them a little bit of flavor t was also a very popular drink. Effort been cooper and archaeologists here often find pieces of teacups and saucers that were left behind and buried underground. We are nearing the end. The laws that we have any final flushing wonderful guys. This is amy. I will look at the chat and read a questions. There was a question about pre heating ovens and that was a really good question about maintaining a consistent temperature. A question is. I wonder if this is where tradition that we get were crackers or bread or mixed into soup where that comes from and another question is how did the the rations correlate with the work that was done. Could you talk a little bit about those elements of the temperature needed for banking and our traditions around soaking crackers or read in soup. Meghan sure in elaine. Your welcome to jump into. I'm not sure How long events starting. Sarah despoiling up to see the original question how long it would take to preheat of in the morning. Do you know anything about that. It took several hours. As i don't know the exact time but you know i would think as much as six hours maybe longer to preheat the oven. Since they were many removes the air so that they could big the big. The breads and districts. They can kind of get a sense you know if it takes that long to preheat leka the fire. Go out right. So that's why you need that constant attention on that that oven and then in for you know dipping crackers into su. I'm not sure this is where that comes from. A you know if you if you don't have a very young have a very good soup with a lot of ingredients putting crackers in it withhold. Make it a little harder beer and a little more philly too so that might also be part of why we add crackers biscuits and things like that to suit is also a question this is abc. About rationing what was the rationale laborers received. We know that food was a really important factor. It's as to why people chose to work at four in couvert. Yes trying looking through the shaft. Because good i had put an answer for the there has been another question about russians. Is we of time yes. Let's go ahead and answer. Also it's really good if if you're answering questions to to sometimes reiterate your answers because everyone has the chance to scan all of those responses and it's helpful for the temperatures as well thank you. So the question is did since correlate with your work as far as different levels of laborers or servants at the fort and the the rations were fairly standardized. Everybody all of the servants received the same ration. There's nothing in the records. Indicate that people receive different things. Obviously yes we mentioned in the garden room The officers of the company and their families were eight a different diet than what the service but to answer the question. The servants all received the same ration. Assuming there was enough you know. As a as i mentioned the rations for change depending what was available so it may be the case that you know people would get court flower. We've flower just because of what was available so it's great it now. We do have some time for questions about the garden if there have been questions about the garden or would like some time to discuss the garden as well as the bay counts. I like the way that the tune teams decided that the garden and the bake house go together right because what you grow in the garden went right into the bake house for preparing for food so we do have time for that. Are there any questions that folks have about the garden or other questions about the bake house omega and i see a question about Okay so it was answered tests answer to how do they keep the hot without a fire. In it commented the bricks in the ovens are made from one holding. He be easier to make it in a fire. I assume they're referring to bread. He want to talk breath at so like. Oh hi guys. I answered that when to just a comment that the fire might char or burn biscuits by cooking them. Too quickly The heat from the bricks that the oven is made from is constant and therefore very good for baking helps. Thanks fisa. is you enter that. Their grandfather used to eat part tack and with butter in soup. We had some questions about the pollinators which flowers attracted the pollinators again. my okay Pretty much all plants that flower. The purpose of the flower is to attract pollinators Most garden plants such as flowers. Vegetables are what we call insect pollinated as opposed to grains and corn which are wind pollinated. The wind distributes the pollen and Fertilizes the plants or not fertilize outside But yes to answer the question. I couldn't possibly all the flatwoods because they're all insect pollinated in the garden. If i read that in europe it was very common to have a lot of our keeping gardens to pointers as well and leonard Yes to fertilize the he plants which will help produced will allow clancy produce seeds and roots and other things. so he's very important function of those frankel question scare. Sorry if there's anything else about pollinators well bees generals there are types of bees. That only also yes. Any beans are definitely the best of it. Question is what was on the second floor of the bay cows And the answer is that we don't completely down by From the records and when they reconstructed the big house they look at you. Know what big houses at forts look like. And what's been written about the forbade hoover big house and big big. Perhaps that it was it might have been living orders or of you know at least a temporary living quarters of in that that second story but in the modern reconstruction data is stored area in case. You're wondering and then i see another question here this. How long did it take to build the modern day replica of the fort own and i would answer by saying that. It's not done yet. You don't be don't have a full reconstruction of the fort that was there in the nineteen hundreds of but it began in the nineteen sixties with the stockade into she factors house and will be bad into over the years as the national park service. There's this place here's a question about. This is amy about the honeybees driving out the native beast. Does anyone know about this. Particular type of fees at their interactions. Well jeez. I arrived out here in the pacific northwest with the settlers Not so much with the hudson's bay company but the people were coming over from the united states coming out west. And i don't really think there's been a problem with the honey bees Kind of choking out the native bees honeybees pretty well contained and they you know kind of stay in their own space and do their little third did their jobs And they don't produce expand in their population like some other insights might do so is not something that i've specifically research. I don't believe that there's been at me album shop. This is amy. We have a few more minutes left before we transition back to our main road. It actually everyone in this room will stay right where they are. I had a question about Things that i've seen a certain volunteer gardeners still maintain the garden and actually volunteer bakers may help recreate the the heart attack or the the bread that was created Can you talk a little bit. About what your volunteers do today. And why that's important. Yes we do. It's mostly at our events. Like campers in candlelight which is a big event that we have every september where there isn't a global pandemic Tracy mentioned that. The enrich reduction So during our special events we do have volunteers to sometimes fire the ovens at an unbalanced rate making her fat or sees the biscuits. And this is amy. I actually saw some people. Using some historic practices like mulching. Mulching leaves grinding them up at at putting the guard into bed just before before winter. Is there any comments. You can make about the practices that your volunteers still engaging laying the gardeners really try very hard and do very good job of making sure that they use methods that were employed during the hudson's bay company period so they are doing the same things in the garden and growing the same things and processing the foods out of the gardens. Same way hudson's bay company would have done very cool and one last really important question was about the indigenous peoples and tribes. They asked if such people came to the fort by choice and what was their roles. What were their roles at the fort. Yes there were Native people coming from all over north america including Alive cree and europe lawyer or new show you both coming to the north west to work at for trade posts including warping There were also need if people from tribes throughout the west who would come to orbit over to work as well and indigenous people native polite. I mean all the way from hawaii to work effort being flavor as well so it was It was a drought that was available and that s interested but it was not mandate smoke. Something that's for sure so it was something that people chose to do to engage a trade with a lot of cultures. Thank you very much for that. Wonderful question is this amy. Speaking about the different ethnicities and people. It was truly a multicultural place. A lot of intersections between cultures and a lot of learning. That probably was shared that. Maybe we still don't even recognize what was learned from digits people's and there's a lot of information be shared in the chapada about the took click tat nations areas more information on the fort vancouver website and what i'm showing right now by choice is that our agenda is pointing us back into this main room where you are right now we are going to transition actually talk a little bit about careers at fort so we're going to take a moment here and pause it makes sure that tracy at meghan and tessa elaine alex doug and bomb from fort vancouver are back with us. We're going to have a little bit of a panel session with them to talk about their careers. So thank you. Very much to Mr bowlers class. At mr lowery's class really excellent job in helping guide the tour of the garden and nba house. All right so leeann. Can you tell me a win. We're back together and and ready to go. Hello this is leeann. The other group ended a few minutes ago and they've started rolling in so i just need to know who i need to highlight. So we'll be ready to go wonderful. So this is amy. We are highlighting. Just leave folks at fort vancouver right now. I've actually only gonna stay on camera for just a bit because helping facilitate some questions. So if you are not speaking. Let's go ahead and go off camera and stay on you. Please thank you so much. Where allowing doug and meghan testses. Tracy alex bob to come back With us now our special host from fort vancouver. They will be speaking to us and answering questions about fair their jobs. Okay and we do wanna close also say to those that were not able to attend both rooms. This these sessions will be recorded. You are also able to look at our website and hopefully learn about the other stations that you were not able to visit because of time all right. Let's go ahead and get started with our next section in the agenda for vancouver staff you have been so wonderful to work with so delightful so easy so welcoming. We felt like this mobility matters was such a nice opportunity to work with you because of your emphasis on inclusion and accessibility and she were interested in making your fourth in making the site this historic treasure More available to everyone. And so we appreciate that even during the pandemic more willing to share your time with us in open us up to your expertise and spent time with our teams co creating event. But i'll be honest with you a lot of us including me. Don't really fully understand all of your different roles. We hear words like archaeologist and curator ranger in superintendent rounds keeper. We don't really know what all of those entail and we also know that people with visual impairments as well as the interested in careers with you and understanding more about something that may wake their curiosity a peak their interest. So let me go around and just ask some questions. And maybe we'll i'll call on you. Turn but certainly just talk about your lives. And what interested you though tracy. Let's start with you. How did you get interested in in being Doing what you do at the ford. And what is a superintendent. That really mean. Sorry thank you amy So i'm the superintendent of quarterback hoover national stork site and. I'm responsible for ensuring that we do the best job we can in managing this national park. It's like running a city and so we are responsible for maintaining the buildings that alarms had convinced faye says Obviously at our site. Archaeology is a very important report as well as a collection. There are many parts of the park a history. How do out to the public. We're public servants. Who worked for the federal government and so he are here to serve the american people and also that any visitors who come from around the world to see for ankles so my job is to work with my t- And all the staff at four fade puberty as well as about three hundred volunteers who support us. And we have. I think about seventy five nurse so it really takes a team of people working together To do what we do To do the best job that we do it for thinks it's part of the national system of and a little bit about me. I was didn't really know what i wanted to be when i grew left. And i think that's the case with a lot of people and so I came to this as as career by happenstance. It was a wonderful opportunity for me. In that way. Tsinghua trump might trail. I followed here was really quite wonderful. And i've never worked for another one station within the national election so i hope that helps. What did you study. this is amy. Where did you go to college. and what. what were your interests so I went to war. I went to college in graduate school. I also i got a b a and a masters of arts degree and it was in public administration political science. I actually grew up overseas. And so i learned about being american from afar and when we were able to come home in for the summer of vacations. My parents often took us to national. Parks are but i was actually on my way to to become an employee with the foreign service and when i was in graduate school might chairman suggested i apply for a summer graduate position with the national park service to be a policy policier. The enemies in i was selected to that position in that started my career with the park service. Thank you so much. Tracy that was really great. Let's let's go to some others. What is a curator meghan. And how did you get interested in this. What did you study to up. So a curator. The national park service is someone who cares or it easy and collection so artifacts that come from archaeology or that are donated by members of the public so caring for those historic ideas and also thanking exhibits and sharing the items with the public as they don't do a ton of good stored away. We want to share them online or exhibits and things like that. So that's also part of the job. I grew up with the national park service. My parents were park rangers. My first home was in a national park service housing at the grand canyon and So i kind of always been around. And when i got to college i went to the university of washington. And i got a bachelor's degree in history and artistry and i got a master's degree in museology which is what the university of washington calls us studies. I mean there are lots of different museums studies. All around the country or museum studies programs Including in the northwest at the university of washington. So that's where i ended up and then Tesla's snatched me up when i graduated and i've been here ever since you all seem really connected. Close like a great team to work another set. Let's go to you talk about your role within the park in in your journey. sure so i'm tussle langford. And i am the cultural resources program manager Which can be a bit of a mouthful but it basically means that. I help with running the office. That protects and shares cultural resources and things like archaeology museum collections landscapes and historic buildings et cetera. So i have degrees in cultural anthropology Both my undergraduate and graduate work. was in anthropology. And then i have a graduate certificate in museum collection care I actually am here to tell you that. It's never too early to start showing your interest in national parks Along with my mother. I started volunteering at four vancouver as a teenager I think i was fourteen or fifteen So i was one. I grew up in vancouver and iowa. Just kinda one that was dedicated to being at the fort from an early age Worked as a seasonal and different jobs. And then. After i graduated from graduate school i was able to become employed here. I love the term. Precising that it's not too early for people that are online and listening to this. This is why the applauded to share this with. You is because it isn't too early for you to be thinking about your interested in volunteering your interest in careers so we will have time for questions at the end as well. Let's go to elaine. Who did such a nice job talking about the garden and you have a different role. It's a different title. urine archaeologist. Is that right. That's i've been Archaeologist with service for about twelve thirteen years actually on staff and i was a research assistant during my time as a graduate student At the fort also and i have currently have a master's degree in anthropology. Archaeology is a discipline of anthropology. And i actually i Path that i followed in order to be with again working for the park service was through my schooling The park service house programs that partnered with students in universities to provide us such as i was research assistant. And then you can also transition into a job with the park service through Through that system. So that was how i managed to come to order for vancouver. This is actually my second career for many years. I was a graphic designer and I was tired of sitting into computer And felt like. I got doug what i wanted to do with that. So i'd always been interested in history and archaeology would get away from the computer which was a little naive on my part but and then So debbie out in the field and address my lover's history. So that was why our marriage to make the switch from via graphic designers for an archaeologist. So i'm actually canadian on sorry i kind of had a connection to the in that way So so i. I really enjoy working here. I focused on landscapes. Which is how i ended up doing my master's thesis on now archaeological research of garden for vancouver so took think that's that's basically land has a story to tell us. Doesn't it very interesting but really back you know. In the earlier centuries people said most of their time outside. And i'm interested in what they were doing outside although those buildings so sharon and i loved the the discussion about the river economy a river in what what role it played at. The ford is so critical for transportation and food and water. Absolutely all of the rivers in the area were they were the easiest way to transport them people and goods so fascinating still still so useful today still so vital for all of us. Let's go to bob. Bob talk about your work with the blacksmith. Is that that the team. She worked most closely for this event. Who will over the last few years. I've rotated out of archaeology and back into it. I was the chief of interpretation for a few years and when i was in that role and working with their interpreters and lover volunteers. I actually got to spend some time in the blacksmith shop. Then minimally learn how to be a blacksmith. I can. I can actually operate the four jn Get some iron hottest hurts pounding away on it. I don't think i can make a little more time in there. But actually that's that was a fascinating thing because i've always looked at. The blacksmith shop from the perspective is an archaeologist looking at the artifacts have been recovered there and analyzing artifacts. But it's something entirely new. Do you actually get the experience of what it was like to try. And make things out of iron and the process of black sniffing. and that's a fascinating rose and archaeologists. We actually call it. Experimental archaeology trying to replicate. How people did things in the past. And there's nothing like that hands on experience on doing something like that and it's a wonderful thing about working for vancouver where we have this reconstruction that's based upon elements of the past. Where you can get the full picture. You can actually go back and try and get that experience okay. How were these things made people pass. Make these things out of they do these things some of the more fun things at some of our volunteer archaeologist. Do they spend time in our archaeological collection at may look at artifacts that were recovered. That were made by watts. Myths in the past and then kate and oftentimes. It's even allowed us to better identify. Thanks because oftentimes we only get broken bits of things from the past and so you know having those volunteers who are skilled as laxness they can look at those broken bits and try and replicate them and sometimes they've been able to identify things that were previously identified so that can be a really fun experience. And i'm really thrilled. I've been able to spend time in the blacksmith shop and hope to get back to it in the future here. Of course i had a little shoulder injury. The last year and a half. But it's coming back to where ford to maybe doing more volunteering at the blacksmith. Stop future artifacts really. Do tell us a story hub. Where did you grow up in. How did you get interested in becoming an archaeologist. I grew up not too far from here. A little town of albany oregon and actually growing up in high school and then putting my way through college. I went to oregon state university. I worked on a grassy of all things and so actually. I was out plowing a field one day and so i'm clogged up. By aero set went back took a look at behold there was this rusty iron an actual ironman ironing clothing These recalled sad irons and a big cast iron and would actually be heated up on a stove and then you would eat them up Use them as an iron clothing and so at the end of the day. I mentioned to the farmer. It's like i found this really rusty iron. And i looked across the field right cloud and there was just sparkling bits of glass and pottery and all sorts of things out there. Oh yeah that was my great grandfather's house that was where we homestead you know that's an eighteen fifty thousand. It burned when i was a kid. Right we over out and it just kind of cut my education and like you know not so long ago. There was a house here there. Were people living here. And i'd always been interested in history. I have a bad through degree in history. But i took an elective in historical archaeology. And it just really caught my imagination and actually started work on hudson's bay company sites at a site called shampoo we state which was actually settled by former employees of the hudson's bay company for vancouver. Who settled down in the valley so that caught. My imagination is archaeologist and it was became a goal to be an archaeologist vancouver. And there's as. I still can't believe i had this opportunity. I've been doing it for over twenty years great. Thank you so much bob. Let's go to Please share a little bit about your professional journey in the work that you do. So i grew up in the southwest and my mother was born and raised in gallup new mexico and so we would visit my grandmother and gallup and my grandmother who is an immigrant from germany loved indians and she loud Going out on the reservation looking at ruins and we would go to all the different southwestern monuments like kenya shea grand canyon and all of the different national park service sites that were around gala and so i was doomed from an early age to go into archaeology I wound up in pennsylvania. My my dad was an engineer. And i'll revisited the colonial sites and battlefields out in the east coast and so when i went into College i went and got a bachelors in anthropology with a specialty in archaeology went ahead and got a masters and a phd. was a university of arizona and i wound up in the pacific northwest And i i worked in a field called cultural resources management and that's In the private sector. In for a while i had my own company and we would Study problems that had to do with developing areas for the roads or subdivisions to make sure that there weren't any archaeological sites vary historic sites or indian sites or burial grounds that would be a problem for the development and so i did a lot of that now in the park service i am. I work at the regional office. I do some of my work at fort vancouver. But i also work on historic sites In archaeological sites and other sorts of cultural resources throughout the west including a wii and the island territories. So one day. I might be looking at a chinese railroad workers camp in the high sierras and the next day. I might be looking at a ritual. Corey allen sipe pan so it's It's really quite Diverse job and. I really love. It also mentioned that i work with many different cultural resources professionals. Like curator's like megan a tessa archaeologists obviously but also people that look at historic structures user called historical architects and they specialize in how preserve old buildings. I also work with cultural landscape architects. People that are very interested in preserving old landscapes historic trees plantings around historic buildings. That sort of thing. So i also worked with historians and archivists In cylinders whole range of fields just dedicated to preserving these really important parts of our our past who nets that's important. It's so vital. Her paths is not really overwrite. It connects us to our present and it helps us make decisions in the future. Hopefully learn about who we want to be in the future from the past and we know that several folks have got to Leave but we also want to leave some time for questions. Let's quickly go to alex. Alex tell us about your job at the fort and about your journey to to do what you do will addison of the silly vander at national or say i grew up in california and my parents do that reminding them i was about four years old and just always love instruction building. The yen's started subbing preservation of accidents scream of his inspiration and then back to school after that associates. Nowhere around study. Construction management ended up and just love the preserving the fabric of bill. That's what i do here. It's all buildings and as part of the manager. My world is own answers different than you're wearing bilious operations maintenance responsible for day-to-day operations buildings sultan's grounds of the earth. And then lots of have some project in the north of the for art so making sure. The art facilities are ferguson. Are same be. You're doing such a fabulous job. Let me just say to to be open to the community to be learning to be partnering with the community. It's off it's always journey right. Just like operations and maintenance. Oem an orientation mobility. Were still always learning new ways to to do that to do that. Work and it is operations. Maintenance is really really important. I want to encourage everyone who hasn't had the chance to visit fort vancouver when this pandemic it's passed us when we are all vaccinated or more closely vaccinated for you to make the trip and actually go see the crown's alex is describing in that everyone is describing. We're gonna take about ten minutes now and open it up to your questions. There was a question specifically for bob about some of the items that he may have have made so. I'm going to scan quickly. But if i've missed a question leeann please feel free to read it out loud to the panelists. Bob tested enhancer back that i am not skilled enough yet to actually make something useful. Actually my best I spent about ten hours at before. Ge's total so. I did make very crude nail but i wouldn't trusted to actually hold much of anything together. I need a little more. It's actually lord. Time in the blacksmith shop to make something useful. It would be interesting to like make a hand for excavation or something like that in the bucks michelle. I think i'm going to have to work up to that all right. Thank you bob. There's a question about how to fishing in the winter and the preservation of rations for year. round your round preservation. Is there anyone that would like to comment on on sustenance on hunting and fishing and practices that were aware of the question thinking of i just keyed in response to that Because it's the right wanted they are asking. People were just waited out and what. I indicated was the hudson's bay company provided rations all year round. Then that's why it was so important and why they focus so much on foods that would preserve through the winter like dried beans and dried porn. things like that and Dried fish So they did so they. Labor is provided with rations all winter long but then hugging the climate is fairly. You know i wouldn't say balmy but but Pleasanton the pacific northwest and hunting and fishing continued all winter long. Also so i wasn't really a waiting it out. There was food available. Amy one of the questions that came on very early on was when we took our walking tour around the fort and saw the buildings. One of the questions is why. Aren't there very many buildings in the middle. They seem to be on the on the outer edges. Yeah i can take that This is doug At the height of the fort she had two courtyards in the middle in that was used for outdoor activities and then the main buildings were gathered around those courtyards and so In front of the first store for example they would use that outdoor area to bring out the furs to beat them. Like you would a rug to get all the dust off into make sure that they aired out and so they would be used utilizing that courtyard space variety of activities question. There was a a question about more of the gardening practices if some additional comments could be made about the usefulness of those gardening practices today. Elaine i suppose they must be referring to the sustainability practices. You think okay. Yeah they're they're it's as a day rededicated when we're talking about in the garden room It's very important actually to if you are going to be using the land to try to use it in a way. That is sustainable. We have plenty of evidence that shows that the methods that we've been using adding chemicals and and things like that are not good for the planet so if everybody could make an effort of their to do things not just gardening but many things in the sustainable fashion that will help to protect the planet for everyone. Really nice in that vein. Aaron had questioned to about what did people with their waste garbage. If it was ganic it went into the garden after had gone through a certain amount of processing and plus. Actually doug might be better for this. This is his specialty but didn't generate years which garbage then as we do now so doug over to you. You're so All archaeologists aren't really hurts in because that's what is left behind after people leave so The refuse piles of the hudson's bay company inside the fort was right behind the buildings inches dumped it out of doors and windows. sewage They had a thing called a privy and was an outdoor outhouse. An outhouse which was away from the buildings he would have been right on the edges of ford palisade. And that's where people would have gone to the bathroom. It was just basically a hole dug in the ground and they had a special type of ceramic containers inside the houses. It kind of looks like a soup tureen. But you would never want to have soup out of it. It's called a chamber pot in that chamber. Pot would have been used for people if they was late at night and they had to get up and go to the bathroom they would go into chamber pot and then someone in the morning would come and dump that stuff in the privy. Yuck to part of life. This is amy part of life in. Its part of recycling to thank you for answering that question. There's been a couple of questions about the life of a blacksmith. I think the blacksmith role is kind of fascinating for a lot of people who've attended today The one question was rushed to a blacksmith. Skit breaks did they. Did they ever earn some time off. And maybe someone could describe kind of what the day in. The life of a blacksmith was and i know in one of your videos that talks about that. Being a blacksmith was an attractive job because of benefits the foods that people would have access to as part of their payment can try and take this one. So i kind of talked about this also during the breakout session. Compared to today. I think lot of people would think being a blacksmith is hard way of life. Right he was very physically demanding. You're hammering on ir. You're standing next to a hot forge all day Is the evidence. Is a blacksmith area for vancouver. Probably doing about twelve hours of work a day. They did get breaks all the employees. God's a breaks actually tea breaks as well as a lunch. Formal lunch break. We really don't know about time off other than during the holiday season specifically christmas and new year's almost everybody at for vancouver got almost streak week off and they really through elaborate parties and had dances and really took us rate from work. And you know. The company would have directed what the blacksmiths were making. You know if there was a need for access for trade than they would set up the blacksmith and tell them hey they might be making accidents for a street meek as they're building up towards the brigade season we need more of you know beaver tracks so suddenly. That's what they're having to make. Probably for weeks on end is just beaver traps and again it just depended on what the need was. Oh we're going to construct a new building. We need door hardware right so they're going to be making strap inches intels or nails. Sometimes they would have to make nails other. The evidence is a lot of nails were actually shipped in remanufactured from england. So i'm sure it was repetitive. Work because again. It's like the company needs axe heads. So you for a week or two you might just be making. Dozens of actions might get kind of tedious. Because you're the same thing over and over and over again but again midst. During the winter it was colder than than it is. Now we have trouble finding a change. what's interesting. Is the columbia river. Used to freeze over almost every winter. you could literally walk across the ice and it's almost a mile wide years for vancouver So it definitely was cold in the winter and it rained all the time or snow of being inside next to a hub. Forge was probably a pretty nice perk of the job during winter. But as i mentioned during the breakout session fits july and august and it's in the eighties or nineties. It's it's going to be a hot job because you're standing next to a very hot fourth so it kind of depended on the season as to how nice it was in the blacksmith shop. So there are a lot of pluses and minuses to being blacksmith. Just like almost any job could think of so much for this wonderful panel discussion of your jobs and your roles at this point in time i know there are dozens and dozens more questions. We will try to answer some of those questions. Offline and via email for you. We also want direct you back to the fort vancouver website if becky could post the fort vancouver website the mobility matters website also has some of those sound clips and directions for sowing your seeds if you got seeds from us other Videos will be posted. They're free to watch again. This another important thing that i want to mention before we go over to our sponsors. It is really important to us to hear from you about what you thought of this event because we're learning to at the university about how to host more accessible events how to be more inclusive of our community so we would love to hear your feedback on this event using a survey and becky is going to post. That survey in the chat hot will also receive an email. Please take a minute or two. Incomplete that survey because that really helps us learn about how to make the world a little more inclusive will share those results of the survey with our partners at fort vancouver to. They're very interested in in supporting accessibility. And in addition in this last portion of the event we're going to hear from some of our sponsors. I'd like to turn it over.

All the interpreters captures and everyone who helps make this tour possible today especially the students. It was so exciting to see people from all over the country here. I worked with one of the sponsors of this event called the digital city testbeds center and that is a program at portland state university. One of the things we do is to look at how new technology can help people with disabilities get around cities safely and easily stuff like an app on your phone that shows and tells you how to get somewhere or different kinds of signs that tell you where you are. We work with community members in portland oregon as well as teachers portland state university in feeding. Dr amy parker. I'm sure some of you are familiar with the phrase. Nothing about us without us. This means that people with disabilities should always be involved in developing the tools. That are supposed to help them. In a dc t see. We believe that working with the community is super important. So thank you for your participation. today we're so happy to support this event. I thought the tour was awesome. And i hope that other national parks will work on developing tourist. Like this one thank you again. We could not have done this. Eventaully dr holly lawson. Whose on screen with me.

The end and without the american printing house for the blind to help purchase the supplies from the gift shop that went out to everyone who helped with the captioning for today. Who helped host with this wonderful room. And who also helped disseminate the message and be more inclusive so that we can truly have a representation from united states. I mean that's really wicked. Cool right so talk to us about your work. Leeann and thanked sure of one of the things that i just wanted to say. Is the american. Printing house for the blind has been around a very long time and so those students out there. If that sounds familiar it might have been written on. Some of your books could be written on some of the materials. You're using some of the electric devices you might use. So that's probably why it sounds familiar. But you don't usually hear from us. So i wanted to let you know. That's why it sounds a little bit familiar. We've been hosting actually learning activities for students three days a week now in the east coast time from three to four. You get to do the math on figuring out what time that is in your time zone and you're welcome to join us live or you can feel free to catch the recordings on our youtube channel.

And then if you're an educator realize we have professional development available to you to we have professional development. That's live where you can actually get in there and ask questions and then we also have a synchronous instruction on a learning management system so you can continue to learn this partnership was wonderful.

Is all four stations represented by the force. Four student leaders. Who are here. I am so excited. Thank you very much already answered. The first question and the second question goes along with that and it just slipped away from my screen. Becky do you have the second question. Paul knock the second question is what did you learn about four vancouver by hoping to host this event tori though head tori. The thing i learned from this is that it's okay to be nervous and that the floor. The blacksmith shop is instead of what so nothing catches on fire. And i was definitely nervous before. The event arles go ahead. Charles on the scene. I learned is that i should will tori. I should always so confident in myself. And i did feel confident and that a lot of the tool. Another thing is a lot of tools for hoover. I learned that. They were only by hand like i at the glass shop and that own unlike of loophole week straits lexus just assets. That's what they learned account with about two. I'm learned that. Wake the tower at the top left of Way picture of the four vancouver power. I assume that like they chew. China's boy knows jersey of announcements that ships going in and out break. That's the question that's exactly right to that. Y different ways. Thought people used to make their gardens. Stein thank you. Yes and i really appreciate that that you were all very brave and stepping out as tory said feeling nervous that that's something that that everyone who was involved. I'm sure even your teachers felt a little nervous about helping hosts such a big online event. Yeah so that's really normal and it is something that you can be very proud of achieving resistant. The third question. You're already rocking through. The questions is what did you learn about yourself or others on the team through this process of helping host the event tori. Go ahead tory island. To be confident is usually what i you know. Audience sometimes get alertus. That's a great thing to learn. As i feel like i'm kind of weird subtypes defensive that not at all. I think very humid. Because if that yeah thank you tori other charles. Sure charles i and to be patient. During the event blurting states out excited to be Bright so giving yourself more time to pause before responding. Yes yeah that's how it is with me too great others. What did you learn about yourself. Or others. Through the process of helping host the event atlantic boston injury or he keeley. You want to answer anything about that question for different kind of for all different I were about myself that The i could. I could do like Practice great great yes. It does take practice to to try new things out and to take on new roles. Heiki league you were saying about that. We're all doing practicing it. Sure this this learning about others to akili. People are all different in that they have different. Strengths won't one nice. Okay where it onto the fourth question. Then in your opinion what were the most successful parts of the event and why charles sure most successful event in my opinion was probably when i spoke lake by carts i feel like i did that pretty well and i felt like i across the city on the practice had paid off healthy so but pretty credited towards a great feeling. Go ahead tory well for me. It was that. I was confident and just pretty well speaking to. I think a lot of people said that about about the student leaders that they were impressed with Your confidence and speaking yet. I is like okay and i think this question too is also about any other parts of the event that you felt were successful not just your role or although your role is very important but What other parts of the events that you thought were successful. Give them a couple of reminders of some examples of things. Oh sure rally. Yeah so we. During the event you heard an inch reduction from tracee superintendent in she talked about with for was and then meghan i. What tour with tactile. You had a copy of you also have other things in kids like those artifacts and the three d. printed floor plans right i think finding materials easily was successful headline montecito. Vermont story. we were just all to leith space to finish your thought of own. I in my opinion is that on. What here. When i was practicing it to all the naturally doing it because like for me i like it's easier just by myself incentivize implantable whole crowd my thinking what will worry. I agree with that. The two of each thing. Why while has got to learn a little bit of out of buildings tour that support now. Doesn't it when you go in there and better weather. Check all the stuff out on the fort before for skills camp. It was tori. Who said that. In fact is i thank for forces. Eventually i moved to vancouver to do this to go to school. Culpable toward it. Only mississippi is amazing. Like we may have lost any of. Yeah so i'll jump in. So were there any other things like that. Mr lowery brought up the materials or the different arts of the different parts of the floor. You like the different stations. Yeah about any of the materials that you received those two and translate something really quick. Sure speaking by the way would go out in the you know slide show for the turon before. It was kind of loud for a while noises. You're assault someone else. Comments in the chat that that was very loud. I put in the chat that i don't like crowd noise. This i understand really good hearing on the tax little math. Make it clear to understand helping to lead out. Yeah i got lost about loss. I was following along was it did go pretty fast. Were you saying something. Akili count stood. How make it bit player. When the what about those three d. printed floorplans without. I've thought those really cool. Okay let's move on to number five this two more questions so this one is in your opinion. What parts of the event weren't as successful or could have been improved trying to think. Oh charles who ahead In my opinion it kind of went a little long so maybe we could have short ended in not did the sponsors that could have been idea like Like once we played with osterloh question after the panel the cringes the could've shorten it could have been like well. Thank you everybody for joining us out of the circle vancouver. Bright a stopped there. We agree eight definitely agree e. Yeah you thought it was a little long to tori breaking. It'll ask me rain on fall asleep ago headache signing the end i had to get up for seconds. Walk around brains geico other ideas about what could have been improved tores While sounds great. But maybe for the cannon the Using the slides lake turn down the volume a little bit and i thought there have been like a little more. Sounds like 'cause my personal Like my personal opinion. I was like i will the fire in me. Most was a little bit shines. I thought thing baby when you dream the walking tour maybe should be inside of the building. As you show the exterior. Shell such experience. I agree a back. I agree with that just moved. Keely did you have any thoughts about what could have been improving the interior to the building just outside that idea right. Well we have one more question okay. Number six might you use what you learned during this experience in the future story. Go ahead torie when Be more confident to an. I do more hosting things If we ever do like this again. I can always take a learned during this and apply them to to this again to like The local of redo the mobility matters again. I could do like that like a playa to save the same learned. Yeah he. Mr larry iva question. Do we do this every year. Or is this just a new samy started during i up until last year. We've always taken our pacific history class on a visit field trip to the four and we did go last year in a ball before school was dismissed. Cova that this is the first year that we've tried anything virtual this and really it. Was you know through the leadership of psu. In collaboration with a lot of folks that we were able to pull together this big and comprehensive of of a virtual tour So yes it's brand new for me and all of us this year right anyone else have anything else. You wanted to add to that last question. How might you use what you learned during this experience in the future and did off. This is amy. I got cut off from the internet. Can you hear me. Okay yes yes speaking. Hey tori So i had a question maybe as a follow up about careers or opportunities for jobs or volunteering or what you might use in the future. Could you talk a little bit about anything that comes to mind in that regard. Did you learn anything about archaeology. Or yeah and you want to be a tennis. So guests that climatize endless archaeology fees some kind of scientists not a archaeologists and and and even know on koa going on and everything. I saw I saw the of ritual tour for vancouver still. Weren't really well charles on charles. I wanna be all adjusts. When i grow up and i could always. I could always work for the national park service as wola. Gist i wanna be chemists. Sards involved in orlando. We're talking about but Well i actually think. Chemistry is involved in archaeology. Tories and i do. I think that maybe as they uncover those fragments of artifacts of historical pieces that they probably have to use a special procedures. There there may be some other connections with chemistry and zoology charles. That's that is a real interest. The national park does. Many national parks have extensive wildlife living on the land bison of goat's. That's that is not out of the question. Is there anything that you learned about jobs that you can think of that. That comes to your mind. A song park service of the park service. The go ahead show streets. Foreman actually started by volunteering. During the summer make k. That sometime and see what it's like to help with you know with the procedure is that they do with the fragments. Then has aaron like him sees actually like put a link in the chat for you. It's a little youtube video about how carbon dating works. Which is a direct tie in where you would use chemistry in archaeological setting. We'll yeah. I topped lincoln. I'm gonna watch the video after this meeting. You know so i. This is a be speaking. I know that you were saying that the the ending part was maybe a little dry with the rangers speaking but i know that that was the part that they wanted to share about their though it raise a we could make that a little more interesting in the ordered that we could take your point. It's as leaders about having a little bit of a break so that people can rest their eyes and go to the bathroom. Veges stretch ryan talk about careers that might have made it better or easier. That's for sure. Definitely definitely a lot of along. Well thank you very much for your time. Is there anything else. You'd like to share with us. Anything that that comes to mind that you'd like to share well when fence act up is that i have my tonsils and adenoids removed when i was Ten almost eleven and been the first grade aged.

That is true. When i was really nervous i to practice old. Wont i practice that. In my had a bite there could be like growth Muggy people other times. That's true that's true. Vakili would be with a smaller audience. This was with a lot of people. Yeah i think you also. We heard back from some people who said that her favourite part of the event was you you will. Yes was years that maybe maybe because you shared and you were brave and didn't let your fears overcome your ability to participate that other kids. Maybe inspired to take on leadership roles.
