Online registration is now available for Heritage BC's annual conference. The conference will take place Sept. 26 and 27 in Cloverdale and will focus on the them "Building Bridges," which will "bring together diverse individuals and organizations interested in exploring the links between heritage, the environment, culture, tourism and the economy," a news release states.

This year's conference is significant, says Heritage BC board president Janice Henry.

"After several years of small, scaled back conferences, Heritage BC's 2014 conference marks a return to a robust format with lots of opportunities for learning, sharing and meeting with colleagues from across the province," Henry said.

The conference will feature plenty of interactive workshops, providing a hands-on learning experience for conference-goers.

"You don't have to be a heritage buff to enjoy this year's conference events," according to executive director Kathryn Molloy. "Come learn about Cloverdale history or  visit our marketplace, with heritage artisans and  hands-on activities for the whole family."

Featured presentations include Snapshots of Surrey History, a walking tour of historic Cloverdale, a visit to the B.C. Vintage Truck Museum, a guided tour of the Surrey Museum's Every River Tells a Story exhibit, and a genealogy presentation at the Cloverdale Library, home to one of the largest collections of family history and genealogy resources in western Canada.
