ODOT LAUNCHES CULTURAL RESOURCE PODCASTS
 
The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) recently launched
several podcasts as part of a pilot project to increase public awareness
about cultural resources along Oregon’s highways, including
heritage-related sites. Initial podcasts will focus on the early
development of ODOT, impacts of World War II on Oregon’s transportation
infrastructure, the historic ferry system, and archaeological resources
in Clatsop County.

COLLECTIONS STEWARDSHIP AND SUSTAINABILITY FOCUS OF PROGRAM 
 
The Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts (CCAHA) will
present “Environmental Management: Stewardship and Sustainability from
8:15 a.m. – 5 p.m., May 22 in Portland. 
 
Many of today’s cultural institutions face the challenge of preserving
collections housed in historic structures, in buildings with aging
systems, or in structures whose designs make environmental management
difficult. Creating stable environmental conditions is the most
significant step an institution can take for the long-term preservation
of the collections under its stewardship.  
 
Co-sponsored and hosted by the Portland Art Museum, this one day
program will include information about the collection environment;
understanding the building / climate relationship; new approaches and
best practices for environmental control; and environmental monitoring
and data analysis. Leading experts in the field will present physically
and financially feasible strategies to help staff of cultural heritage
organizations preserve their treasures for the long-term.
