We specialize in Yukon Heritage
The Yukon's heritage is diverse. It includes ancient peoples and gold-hungry newcomers, remains of ice-age animals and Beringian landscapes, as well as an incredible variety of plant and animal life in a subarctic environment.
Our work, over almost forty years has included research, writing, interpretation, planning and preservation of these many facets of heritage.
Our knowledge of Yukon resource material is extensive. Research projects include First Nations, post contact history, natural history, and environmental issues.
Our writing projects have encompassed a range of formats from point of interest signs to pamphlets to books. Topics have included First Nations history, community histories, biographies, natural history heritage policy, historic site nominations and procedural manuals.
Much of our work involves the collection of information and images, writing and interpretation of Yukon's first peoples. Our projects have included books, interpretive manuals, a storybook, as well as many planning and interpretation projects.
A great deal of our research, writing, planning and interpretation work has involved the Whitehorse riverfront.

Museums and Cultural Centres
We have worked with most of the Yukon's major museums and many interpretive centres developing exhibit concepts and storylines. We also have created the graphics and layouts for several exhibits. Often, we work in concert with designers and fabricators.
