Vanishing Teasures 2017 Training
Blaise Davi (retired NPS); Lisa Sasser (retired NPS); Charlie Pepper (NPS)
Offered in partnership with the Stephen T. Mather Training Center, this workshop will present a working knowledge of historic preservation principles which inform the execution of skilled trades work on cultural resources in the field. Upon completion, participants will have a deeper understanding of how treatment decisions are developed, how resources are evaluated, and how compliance, laws, and Secretary’s Standards are directly connected to the work performed by trades peronnel. These fundamental concepts of historic preservation provide a strong foundation for understanding the ‘why’ behind the preservation work performed by field personnel, supporting successful maintenance and preservation activities, and operations on cultural resources.
