Parks, Work, Play and Civic Engagement Conference: California’s Russian Heritage
As Fort Ross State Historic Park celebrates its 200th anniversary in 2012, the California State Parks Foundation’s Hidden Stories program will take a retrospective look at the past two centuries of Russian influences on California’s history with a day-long conference in beautiful San Francisco!
Along with our conference partner, the Fort Ross Interpretive Association, and our sponsors Renova Fort Ross Foundation, Russkiy Mir Foundation, Chevron, and the Russian Federation Consulate, the Russian Influences in California’s History: Parks, Work, Play and Civic Engagement conference will bring to light additional places of historic Russian significance, ignite discussions on concrete actions to build an engaged Russian-American constituency for the parks system, and provide a collaborative space for community members, educators and park professionals to create strategies to fill gaps in the Russian stories told in the parks system.
The all-day conference will have three panels with historians, professors, and storytellers. The panels are Sea-Otter Skins, Grain and Warm Ports: Russia’s Maritime Frontier in Early California with Dr. Ken Owens from California State University, Sacramento, Dr. Kent G. Lightfoot from the University of California, Berkeley, and Dr. Glenn Farris from the Fort Ross Interpretive Association; Russian Immigration: Routes, Arrival and Assimilation with Dr. Michael W. Tripp of Vancouver Island University, Ms. Maria Sakovich, noted historian, and Ms. Eugenia Bailey, Russian émigré; and finally, Russian Scouting in California Parks and Wildlands with Ms. Irene Bogoslovsky from the St. George Pathfinders, Dr. Anatol Shmelev from Stanford University, and Archpriest Alexander Krassovsky from Sts. Peter and Paul Russian Orthodox Church.
A banquet lunch will be served with a keynote speech from Vasily Istratov from the Russkiy Mir Foundation; and the afternoon’s highlight will be group brainstorming sessions on topics such as Historic Preservation; the Media; Education; and Parks and Outreach. The Conference will be followed by a cocktail reception at the Russian Federation Consulate. This reception is generously supported by the Consul General of the Russian Federation, Mr. Vladimir N. Vinokurov.
