National Park Service Preservation and Skills Training Program Evaluation Study

The National Park Service has a preservation skills training program that has taught over 100 building maintenance personnel the proper skills and techniques to maintain, repair and restore historic structures in the national park system. The purpose of this study is to design and implement an evaluation process for that training program. The study will evaluate impact of the program and personnel skills on long-term preservation of historic resources in the national park system.
 
The project is being jointly undertaken by Professor Cari Goetcheus, and Dr. Brett Wright, Chair of the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism.
