We Can Do it together

 

The three tiered <NN> Cannery History Project is a collaboration between Alaska Association for Historic Preservation, Tundra Vision, Sea Level Consulting, SteelBird Productions, LaRece Construction, and Trident Seafoods to collect, share, and preserve the stories of the diverse, and often invisible, cannery workers whose activities are reflected by and embedded in the industrial landscape contained within the 128-year-old <NN> Cannery at South Naknek, Alaska.
