NWRS Time Capsule Upper Souris 2003
Time Capsule Event Becomes Eagle Scout Project!
The dedication Ceremony for one of the USFW National Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS) Time Capsules was spearheaded by Daniel Johnson for his Eagle Scout project. It was a project enjoyed by the whole community there in North Dakota. This ceremony was held at the Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge.
NWRS Time Capsule Dedication Ceremony a Success
At Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge in North Dakota, Daniel Johnson spearheaded the NWRS Time Capsule project. He prepared a place to house the NWRS Time Capsule and its enclosure. He made the protective enclosure that housed the capsule. It was an important part of the dedication ceremony on 23 September 2003.
That year, all of the USFW National Wildlife Refuges nationwide were celebrating centennials. The NWR history throughout those 100 years made for some interesting projects. We at Future Packaging & Preservation are proud to have been a primary part of those celebrations.
This time capsule measured 16x12x28″. It's similar to the 14x14x30 time capsule container we offer today. We engraved it and painted it for them.
Room Enough for Insulation
The enclosure was large enough to accommodate insulation in between the outside of the time capsule and the inside of the enclosure, plus the rocks give it an added amount of protection. When you place a time capsule such as this NWRS Time Capsule above ground, you need to do everything you can to keep the time capsule at a stable temperature over time. You don’t want to bake the capsule during the day and have it cool at night. The contents inside the time capsule will be affected adversely if you do that.
