2019 Oregon Main Street Conference and Excellence in Downtown Revitalization Awards
Connecting People, Places, and Partners
The Oregon Main Street Conference is a gathering of over 200 leaders and organizers from across the state interested in revitalizing their downtowns. These efforts range from building design and preservation, streetscape and placemaking projects, business retention and recruitment, market analysis, organization capacity, encouraging and supporting local entrepreneurs, special events, funding mechanisms, and more.
The theme for the 2019 conference is Connecting People, Places, and Partners. The goals is to encourage conference attendees to think about how to leverage different partners, programs, and opportunities to help them create a vibrant, sustainable, successful downtown.
We are thrilled to announce the featured Keynote Speaker, Melody Warnick. Ms. Warnick is the author of This Is Where You Belong: Finding Home Wherever You Are, a practical guide to loving the place where you live that has been featured in the New York Times, Time magazine, Fast Company, Psychology Today, and others. Described by Richard Florida as "an important book for so many people who are choosing their place to live," This Is Where You Belong explores the groundbreaking concept of place attachment and leads longtime residents and newcomers alike to commit to a more passionate relationship with their community. A regular speaker about place, Melody also is a freelance writer for such publications as Reader's Digest, The Guardian, and O: The Oprah Magazine. She lives with her husband and two daughters in Blacksburg, Virginia. You can find her online at melodywarnick.com.

Archaeology in urban neighborhoods featured on the Oregon Heritage Exchange
While SHPO Archaeology Intern, Amy Clearman, was working with us this summer, we learned about the awesome project she is doing for her thesis and we thought we would share it! Learn about her search for the first Fort Vancouver built in 1825. This search involves engaging and working with homeowners to do some excavations in their backyards.

Pacific Northwest Field School heads to Silver Falls this summer
Where and Why:
The Pacific Northwest Preservation Field School (PNWFS) has been teaching hands-on preservation skills at historic sites throughout Oregon, Idaho, and Washington for 25 years. This year, the PNWFS will be held at the historic Youth Camp at Silver Falls State Park. Beginning in 1935, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) completed several projects throughout the 9,000-acre state park including boundary surveys, trails, parking areas, and building and shelter construction. In 1938, the National Park Service oversaw the CCC's construction of a new Recreation Demonstration Area at Silver Falls State Park, which is now known as the Silver Falls Youth Camp.
During three one-week sessions in September 2019, field school participants will assist with the rehabilitation of several historic camp buildings. Projects will include masonry repair, log work, window rehabilitation, roof repairs, condition assessments, cultural landscape investigations, and specialized historic building maintenance. Local professionals will provide evening lectures on the history, theory, and practice of cultural resource management and historic preservation. Participants live, learn, and work at the site throughout the session. All participants will receive a Certificate of Completion confirming their basic knowledge of historic preservation theory and practice.
When and What:
Session 1: Specialized Preservation Maintenance, September 3 - 6
During our first Field School session, students will recondition and repair historic woodwork, rehabilitate masonry elements and windows, and conduct condition assessments at the Youth Camp. This four-day session is ideal for facilities and maintenance managers working in National Forests, State Parks, National Parks, or anyone working in the field of historic structure maintenance and rehabilitation.
Session 2: Materials Intensive: Wood, September 8-13
Our second session will focus on the most common material at the Youth Camp: wood. Topics include wood science and pathology, window frame rehabilitation, shingle work, cleaning agents, log felling and replacement, and more. This one-week session is ideal for participants who want to increase their knowledge of preservation practices for wood elements in historic buildings and those interested in wood rehabilitation and conservation.
Session 3: Preservation Primer, September 15-20
The final week of Field School will offer an introduction to historic preservation and preservation trades. Topics include the history and theory of preservation, cultural resource management basics, historic building materials, best preservation practices, cultural landscape assessments, and more. This one-week session is ideal for those who are new to the field and all incoming students to the University of Oregon's Historic Preservation program.
The Pacific Northwest Preservation Field School is sponsored by the University of Oregon, the National Park Service, the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, the Washington Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation, Washington State Parks, and the Idaho State Historical Society.
Instructors for the Field School include professional preservationists from the National Park Service and private companies working in preservation. Field School lectures and educational sessions are led by instructors from the University of Oregon and cultural resource management professionals from both the public and private sector.
Current Pacific Northwest Preservation Field School Staff includes Chad Randl, Interim Department Head of the University of Oregon Historic Preservation Program and Faculty Advisor to the Field School, Allison Geary, Field School Coordinator, and Kate Kornder, Graduate Employee for the Field School.
Tuition and Credits:
Tuition + One Undergraduate Credit
Tuition + One Graduate Credit
Tuition + Two Undergraduate Credits
Tuition + Two Graduate Credits
2 & 3
Tuition includes food, lodging, and local transportation for the duration of the session. Undergraduate and graduate credits are available for students at University of Oregon and other academic institutions. The Director's Scholarship is open to all Field School participants and covers the cost for one field school session and a $100 travel allowance (up to $1350). Financial Aid may be available for Field School participants from the University of Oregon.
Applications are now open for the Field School! The application deadline is August 1st.

Free webinar July 9 on HVAC and collection environment
Maintaining appropriate preservation environments - those that can manage risks of chemical and mechanical degradation, while protecting against mold and corrosion - often requires the use of heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning, or HVAC. This session will discuss strategies for collections and institutional staff working with engineering/contractor partners during HVAC design, installation, and renovation processes, with the ultimate goal being an active, integrated decision-making approach that best combines the expertise of both collections and mechanical professionals.
