What We Do

Assisting Keweenaw Heritage Sites and Partners-
Copper Country Preservation (CCP) provides financial and technical assistance to local Keweenaw Heritage Sites and other park partners. This assistance provides the partners with training and education on topics such as resource interpretation, preservation methods, marketing, fundraising, and grant writing. The ultimate goal is to provide the partners with the knowledge and resources to enable them to become fully sustainable organizations that effectively contribute to the mission of the Keweenaw National Historical Park.

Promoting a Preservation Ethic-
Copper Country Preservation also works to instill a preservation ethic along the entire Keweenaw Peninsula. In addition to being a public advocate for preservation, CCP aspires to provide organizations and individuals with the tools necessary to identify, rehabilitate and protect important historic resources.

Partnering with the National Park Service-
As an extension of the park's Advisory Commission, Copper Country Preservation works collaboratively with the Keweenaw National Historical Park to promote the park's mission through financial assistance.
