The Pacific Northwest Preservation Field School, in its 22 year, is working at Mt. Rainier National Park during the month of August on a variety of projects with many learning opportunities for anyone interested in the field of historic preservation and hands on craft training.

Specifically, space is available for participation during Sessions 3 and 4: August 21-26 and August 28 - September 2 at Longmire where they will be working with a cottage built in 1937 by the Civilian Conservation Corp. Projects will include carpentry repair to the foundation sill and lower portions of the building, wood window rehab, other carpentry detail repair and restoration, and siding rehabilitation.

Staff includes a professional craftsman working within the National Parks system, professionals in the fields of architecture, art history, historic preservation, and material science, and instructors like Emeritus professor Don Peting from the Architecture department, and Shannon Sardell, who currently teaches in the Historic Preservation Program while also maintaining an architectural practice emphasizing historical architecture.

There are opportunities to tour other points of interest in the region with planned tours at Paradise Lodge, the new Paradise visitor center, current construction projects, and regional interpretive centers.

If you are interested please see further information at hp.uoregon.edu/pnwfs<http://hp.uoregon.edu/pnwfs> where you can apply for 2 academics per week of participation. Please also feel free to contact Director Shannon Sardell at ssardell at uoregon.edu<mailto:ssardell at uoregon.edu>.


Restore Oregon's Preservation Toolkit offers a guide to the process and decisions that need to be made when approaching the restoration and reuse of a historic building. The toolkit can be applied to small-to-medium commercial properties, homes, barns, and other types of structures.

The toolkit is available for free online<http://restoreoregon.org/preservation-toolkit/> and was supported by grants from the Oregon Cultural Trust, The Oregon Community Foundation, and Pacific Power.


During the 2016 legislative session, a bill was passed that increased funding for Oregon's statewide tourism investment. Following the passage of this bill, Travel Oregon conducted an intensive online survey about the recently passed legislation, Travel Oregon's programs, and tourism priorities across the state. In addition to the survey, they also hosted 21 Oregon Tourism Town Halls across the state. The results of the survey and the town hall meetings will be used as input for the Oregon Tourism Commission's Strategic Plan process for 2017-2019.
