10th Annual Preservation In Your Community

NATCHITOCHES, LA— National Park Service offices in Natchitoches will highlight preservation activities in the Cane River region during the 10th annual Preservation in Your Community event on Aug. 10.

The event will be held at the headquarters of the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT), 645 University Parkway. NCPTT is sponsoring the event along with the Cane River Creole National Historical Park (CARI) and the Cane River National Heritage Area (CRNHA).

The public is invited to stop by anytime between 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. to enjoy refreshments, view exhibits from local heritage groups, and visit with NCPTT, CARI and CRNHA interns from across the country about their preservation research.

“Preservation in Your Community showcases a lot of interesting work that the community might enjoy, but may not be aware of,” Kirk Cordell, National Center for Preservation Technology and Training executive director, said.

This year’s event will focus on giving attendees preservation information they can use for their own heritage activities and projects.

If your organization would like to participate in Preservation in Your Community or if you would like more information, contact Cameron Tillman at 318-356-7444
