Albany to host Oregon Heritage Conference April 23-25

Wed, Feb 05, 2014

The Oregon Heritage Conference brings together people who love and work with Oregon's heritage. Designed to be interdisciplinary, the conference focuses on all sectors of heritage, such as historic preservation, museums, archives, libraries, and local and state government. By bringing everyone together in one place, we can begin to realize that our work in heritage is all interconnected, that we have similar problems, and, together, can create better solutions.

The 2014 Oregon Heritage Conference will offer workshops, tours, and breakout sessions about the intersection of heritage recreation including heritage and bikeways, historic landscapes, heritage recreation, interpreting local recreation, and integrating heritage into local culture. There will also be tours of nearby historic trails and Thompson’s Mills State Heritage Area. Breakout sessions will also address collections care and disaster preparedness for museums, archives, and libraries, historic district regulation, revitalization strategies for downtowns, and archaeological interpretation.
