October 7 at 3 ET — Battlefield Preservation Planning Grants as a Partnership Tool
The armed conflicts that shaped the growth and development of the United States span the breadth of American history and geography and help tell the full American story – from 16th century conflicts between Indigenous peoples and Spanish colonists to World War II in the Pacific. This webinar will introduce NPS American Battlefield Protection Program grants as tools to foster partnerships between conservation, heritage, and community organizations, with a particular focus on the Battlefield Preservation Planning Grant program. These grants have a broad mandate, supporting Tribal, state, and local governments and nonprofit and educational organizations in a wide variety of preservation and stewardship activities, including consensus building, land use and conservation planning, oral history, archeological survey, interpretive programming, and documentary filmmaking. The American Battlefield Protection Program will share expanded guidance on eligible sites and activities for FY2021 and lead a discussion on how we can collaborate with NPS parks, programs, and partners to encourage proposals from new applicants and recognize and decrease barriers to entry in the short and long term.
