Preservation Matters

Preservation Matters presented by Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation

On Monday, August 29, Mark C. McDonald, president and CEO of the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation, will discuss a topic important to many Athenians, “Historic Preservation and Sustainability.” The talk will explore the environmental benefits of historic preservation and how they relate to land use, urban planning, and green building.

He will stress the need for preservationists and green building advocates to cooperate and will also explain the sustainability goals set by the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation.

This event will be held at the Melting Point. Join us to mix, mingle, and eat at 6:00 p.m. The lecture begins at 6:30 p.m. and is FREE and open to the public.

“Preservation Matters” debuts in August as the Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation’s newest program, to annually consist of a lecture, hands-on-workshop, symposium and tour. Visit http://www.achfonline.org/ for more information.
