From Nuclear Waste to Manholes: the What, Why and How of Surveys

This webinar is presented by the California Preservation Foundation. 

This presentation will focus on the what, why and how of historic resource surveys. Surveys are one of the basic building blocks of preservation planning, providing government agencies, developers, building owners and scholars with basic information for understanding the built environment, and for planning future interventions. The presentation will be illustrated with examples from several surveys, including urban surveys focusing mostly on buildings, and surveys focusing on less commonplace resource types.

Volunteer Management for Historic Preservation Surveys and Advocacy

This webinar is presented by the California Preservation Foundation. 

Volunteers play a critical role in local historic resource surveys and preservation advocacy efforts. They frequently determine whether or not a grant-funded survey makes financial sense for a local government. For local nonprofit organizations, volunteers also form the backbone of a strong preservation outreach and advocacy effort. This short webinar will gather together an expert panel of speakers from nonprofits, local government, state government and consulting. Learn how preservation can efficiently manage and leverage the power of volunteer-driven efforts - whether in advocacy or local historic resource planning. This webinar will be beneficial to local planners, advocates, consultants, and anyone interested in utilizing volunteers to make long-yearned-for preservation projects financially feasible.

If you're a city planner or preservation architect, have you ever had a homeowner ask you to "just move the window out two feet" or say they "love their Craftsman home but want to remove the porch?" This webinar addresses the Secretary of the Interior Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties and how to apply them using several case studies. Attendees will learn about the four treatment standards: preservation, rehabilitation, restoration and reconstruction; and how to select the appropriate treatment for a project.
