According to the Rutgers University's Center for Urban Policy Research, the Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentives Program<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=0013lPkeEc8VI2xo9TggLWW5lzticwx78Z6J61fh1Lx5VScGi-ZyuO_vcYZ2xwzbwdQ8G6VPVs-bd-6yGpXJplIJcwVYyKYHfzd_hxrs3jEkfKfAiVIFW4grTwtkyvXF7hDxcEcm--twwWEFXT1pL5NkrQFVssheJLXowQl2YNNMwQ=&c=QsmRWMYeRiHScmLol1k5VPPQI_qFpDZJckgV1X9vu-KQRMiJE5r-zQ==&ch=_XISsyjc3ABEXBCHwPn6a_HfY9kmjQ5Thl-dguyRdzvpyMQWbKMQOA==> contributed more than $12.2 billion in output in terms of goods and services to the U.S. economy and added $6.2 billion in gross domestic product in Fiscal Year 2017. The program is administered by the National Park Service and the Internal Revenue Service, in partnership with State Historic Preservation Offices.

"Historic preservation tax incentives continue to drive investments in historic preservation and revitalize communities across the country," said National Park Service Deputy Director P. Daniel Smith. "Over the past 40 years, this successful federal/state partnership has enabled the preservation and rehabilitation of more than 43,000 historic properties, while generating more than $144 billion in private investment along the way."

OAS Basic Training is an annual program taught by experienced regional professionals from organizations such as the U.S. Forest Service, BLM, and the University of Oregon. The sessions are typically held on six Saturdays in late winter at the Portland Community College Rock Creek Campus.

If you looking to learn more about archaeology basics, or need a refresher on the history of the Pacific Northwest, this is a great introductory program. Completing the OAS Basic Training program will allow you to have access to volunteer field work opportunities with professional archaeologists, including the University of Oregon field school and excavations and lab work at Fort Vancouver.

Topics for the first two sessions include archaeology basics as well as information on artifacts, laws and ethics, Northwest archaeology and rock art, site stewardship and volunteering. The four additional training sessions cover field excavation, laboratory methods, site mapping, cataloging and compass reading. The program is a great way to network with other archaeology lovers and to learn how you can get involved in the field. Please reserve your space early.

The entire six-session package is $95 which includes a one-year OAS membership,
or $65 for current OAS members.

The 2019 OAS basic Training classes will begin February 9, 2019 and run for six consecutive weeks. To learn more or to register visit here<http://www.oregonarchaeological.org/training/>.
