    Today we added a National Park Service workshop to our conference offerings.  It will be held on Wednesday, May 8 during the day when we hold the breakout sessions as well.  The attached link takes you to the conference schedule prior to recent updates, but gives you the scope of the program.  Please register for this program.  As a small city, St. Augustine is faced with unique challenges and opportunities.  This conference will address both.

    Sounds really interesting, @Leslee Keys. We'll be in Florida in 2020 for our conference and we'll be talking about these issues, so def interested in this content.

    Do you know if the documentary is available? If so, I was thinking of adding it to thread we have about preservation films (and watching it!)

    Also, per some of the content, I thought this article might be of interest--How a wee Scottish village is shining a light - literally - on rising seas.

    And we had Victoria Hermann (America's Eroding Edges) as a keynote from our conference last year, this presentation (TrustLive: Resilience) might be of interest to you! ​
