The National Center for Preservation Technology & Training is hosting Preservation in Your Community, an annual research and project showcase, at the NCPTT headquarters in Natchitoches tonight, August 2.  Several NCPTT summer interns and other local partners will be sharing work, and I will be sharing the above poster on Hodges Gardens landscape research.  The event is sponsored by NCPTTCane River National Heritage Area, and Cane River Creole National Historical Park.  If you are in the area, I hope you will consider attending.  The come-and-go event happens from 5pm to 7pm.

Update: the evening was a success!  Numerous friendly, interested folks attended PIYC last night.  Appetizers and drinks were available as people gathered and conversed.  Interns and area partners shared research, projects, and other information.

Last Wednesday, July 27, I posted to the NCPTT website and shared a summary of this Hodges Gardens research.  The National Center for Preservation Technology & Training progresses preservation research, and it partners with the private and public sector through education, training, and grants.  I provided a link on the NCPTT post to encourage more readers to visit this Exploring Hodges Gardens blog.   You can check out the post, and learn more about NCPTT and the Historic Landscapes program here at http://ncptt.nps.gov/category/historic-landscapes/

I hope you enjoyed the House Island photos shared in the previous post.  I have several more photos I would like to share, and am working on making images available on Flickr.com.  This will help keep blog posts at a reasonable length and provide an exciting atmosphere to continue expanding the online Hodges Gardens community through this historic landscape research.  View the Exploring Hodges Gardens Flickr photos at http://www.flickr.com/photos/exploringhodgesgardens/   Many of the House Island photos I uploaded in Flickr were taken by Jennifer Mui, NCPTT Architecture & Engineering intern.
