Only the Oaks Remain commemorates the history of the Tuna Canyon Detention Station. The exhibition features many items that serve to illuminate a largely untold story that goes beyond the more widely-known story of the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans. A highlight is an Honor Wall that bears each detainee’s name.
Only the Oaks Remain is organized by the Tuna Canyon Detention Station Coalition, a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising public awareness about the site’s history (at the former Verdugo Hills Golf Course). It is working to develop a permanent Tuna Canyon Detention Station Memorial, which will include a plaque and educational posts installed along a walking path lined with mature oak trees, to further educate future generations.
This project was organized by the Tuna Canyon Detention Station Coalition; funded, in part, by a grant from the US Department of the Interior, National Park Service, Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant Program; and sponsored by the San Fernando Valley Japanese American Community Center.
