Lopez Island residents Carol Noyes and Gabe Strand have been selected for the Washington State Heritage Apprenticeship Arts Program, a statewide program celebrating and supporting traditional arts. Created to encourage people to learn a traditional trade, craft or skill, the Heritage Arts Apprenticeship Program conserves and helps carry on cultural traditions important to Washington’s communities. Noyes and Strand will form a master-apprentice pair to learn the skill of wild plant foraging during the 2019-2020 period.
