Preservation Month 2018: 31 Days of Action for Preservation

By Forum Online posted 05-01-2018 14:58


We spend all year advocating for places that matter. During Preservation Month, we flex our preservationist muscles by setting aside time to celebrate and explore historic places in innovative ways. This May the National Trust needs your help. Complete the action items on the list below, and let us know when you've done so by tagging #ThisPlaceMatters. We can’t wait to see what you accomplish!

Day 1. Share this list on social media, and compete with your preservation pals to see who can check off the most items. (And follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram, if you haven't already!)

Day 2. Read the latest issue of Preservation magazine.

Day 3. Share your photos of historic places. Don’t forget to use #ThisPlaceMatters!

Day 4. Visit a historic site or house museum near you.

Day 5. Take your This Place Matters swag out on the town. You can print your own using our digital toolkit, or you can buy gear in our online store.
