Guiding Principles for Field-Based Historic Preservation



Canceled: Due to COVID-19, this course has been canceled, but will likely be offered in 2021.

These workshops, offered in partnership with the Vanishing Treasures Program, will present a working knowledge of historic preservation principles. Upon completion, participants will have a deeper understanding of how treatment decisions are developed, how resources are evaluated, and how compliance, laws, and Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties are directly connected to the work performed by trades personnel. This course will be split between classroom and field-based sessions, and will provide a practical education in the why’s and how’s of historic preservation in the NPS.

Contact Erin Gibbs (erin_gibbs@nps.gov) if you have any questions.
