Keweenaw National Historical Park Advisory Commission
The Keweenaw National Historical Park Advisory Commission was established, along with the park, by an Act of Congress on October 27, 1992. The commission and its members serve at the request of the Secretary of the Interior.
The seven-member commission is mandated to operate in support of the varied activities of Keweenaw National Historical Park, while acting as a conduit between the park and its neighboring communities. The commission members are drawn from organizations that are relevant to the park's preservation and interpretation efforts.
The commission's quarterly meetings are open to the public.
