In January 1992 LANDMARKS in conjunction with the School Partnership Program began "What Are Buildings Made Of?" (WABMO). An acclaimed heritage education program supported since its inception by the Regional Arts Commission, the original WABMO sessions were directed to students in the fourth through sixth grades. Since then the program has grown to include versions for high school and college students, for at-risk youth and for senior citizens.
