Keeping History Above Water: West
California Preservation Foundation 2018 Pre-Conference Workshop
May 17, 2018 | 10 am – 5 pm
Palo Alto, CA
How can communities identify, prioritize, and adapt historic places to threats posed by climate change and natural disasters? This day-long workshop covers climate change adaptation concepts and projects specific to cultural resources. Showcasing local, regional, and nationwide case studies, participants will become equipped with tools to integrate into their own practices. Topics will include cultural resource vulnerability assessments, FEMA policies and Local Hazard Mitigation Plans, design solutions, inventorying, risk communication, and existing institutional and policy barriers. Small group discussions will also foster a greater collective understanding of existing historic resource resiliency challenges.
Educational credits (AIA and APA) are available to those who attend the workshop.
