With support from NCPTT and the Lowell Parks and Conservation Trust, Inc., the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) will be presenting a Historic Cemetery Preservation Workshop on November 18, 2011 in Lowell, Massachusetts.

Technical sessions and outdoor cemetery labs will provide attendees with a foundation of knowledge for protecting the historic character of these significant public landscapes. From documentation and planning to partnerships and funding, the workshop is designed to help municipal staff, cemetery managers and crews, volunteers, consultants and anyone interested in the preservation of the Commonwealth’s rich cultural landscape.

    Is NCPTT &/or other partner organizations or agencies offering this same course in 2012. Very interested if you are as we are beginning an burial ground preservation project at our Forest Service unit in northeast Pennsylvania.

    I’m interested, in more education on all to do with Historic Graveyard Preservation.

    From Learning stones to writing for grants to get funds.

    I presently do Graveyard relamation and preservation, now as a career as I have been retired from public service.
