Our partners at the California Preservation Foundation and the the Newport Restoration Foundation are inviting you to a day long workshop examining how communities identify, prioritize, and adapt historic places to threats posed by climate change and natural disasters. The workshop will cover 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.
