Bring Your Own Hard Hat (BYOHH) Tours were first established in 2009 to provide networking and educational opportunities for MHPN/Historic Resource Council (HRC) level members. These events have also been a conduit for membership drives and fundraising opportunities. Additionally, they:

  • Can be scaled to fit any project or targeted audience
  • Provide an opportunity for project teams to market and showcase their work – even before it is finished
  • Can occur at multiple times during the project to highlight different aspects
