Thank you for your contribution and making our garbage clean-up a huge success. Small acts of kindness go a long way. In a few short hours, you've helped keep our community beautiful, supported a local non-profit, and inspired others to give back ❤️.

Conservators assess, repair, preserve, and prevent further damage to artworks and historical pieces. This piece has been damaged by silverfish, which eat the gelatin binder applied to art to hold the image particles in place.

Note: This piece is part of the Archives’ conservation lab study collection, and is used for educational purposes. It is not part of the archival holdings of the Yukon Archives.

We are thrilled to announce that local architecture and interior design firm Northern Front Studio has come on board as a sponsor for LePage Park!

Recently, we embarked on a multi-year plan to renovate LePage Park in Whitehorse, home to three designated heritage buildings, a public park, and YHMA's office - as well as a popular venue for community events and recreation. You can choose to direct your donation to this project by selecting the LePage Park Conservation & Maintenance Fund.

The Yukon Historical & Museums Association (YHMA) has broken ground on a major resurfacing project for LePage Park, located in downtown Whitehorse, with work expected to be completed within two weeks. The former concrete paver circle, wooden decking, and exposed ground area between the stage and seating area will be replaced with recycled rubber surfacing, an option that offers a more comfortable surface for users as well as increased safety and durability.
