HistoriCorps featured in National Parks Conservation Association’s Quarterly Magazine

The NPCA’s National Parks quarterly magazine recently featured an article titled, “Rebuilding the Past: The National Park Service is finding new ways to preserve historic buildings.” There are about 9,600 historic buildings in the National Park System which would require $3  billion to maintain, money the agency simply doesn’t have. HistoriCorps is part of a creative solution to address this funding gap, providing volunteers with educational and outdoor experiences while saving and sustaining these special places. “Invariably volunteers come back saying this has been an incredible experience,” says Townsend “Towny” Anderson, director of HistoriCorps. “They take skills back to their communities, and they become advocates for historic preservation.” Read the article here.
