National Park Service Awards Grants to Support Historic Preservation through Technology
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Park Service

Washington – National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis today announced the award of $50,000 in grants from the National Center for Preservation Technology & Training to assist with projects using science and technology for historic preservation. Grants projects in the amount of $25,000 each were awarded to the California Preservation Foundation to advance distance learning by means of a Preservation Virtual Classroom, and the Tulalip Tribes Hibulb Cultural Center to develop a symposium on the Conservation and Continuation of Native American Monumental Wood Carving.

“These innovative projects are developing new technologies to preserve our nation’s historic resources,” said Director Jarvis. “We are pleased to provide assistance for these programs that are bringing the best skills and technology of the present to preserve the treasures of the past.”

The California Preservation Foundation in San Francisco will use the grant to expand its traditional preservation education program by using new technologies that will offer interactive professional and technical preservation courses online in a virtual classroom setting. Target audiences include those interested in preservation education but can
neither travel nor afford traditional face-to-face classes.

The grant will allow the Tulalip Tribes Hibulb Cultural Center in Tulalip, Washington, to host a two-day symposium that examines the complexity of the history, cultural relevance and the conservation of monumental wooden carvings. The symposium will address the history behind the past care of poles, posts, canoes and similar large Native carvings held in conventional museum settings, while at the same examining their original purposes and the personal visions of the Native Carver.

Since 1994, the National Park Service’s National Center for Preservation Technology and Training in Natchitoches, Louisiana has funded science and technology projects in historic preservation. The center strives to create new technologies and training opportunities to preserve prehistoric and historic resources throughout the United States.
