May is Preservation Month

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has declared that the Month of May is Preservation Month:

Throughout May, the National Trust and its thousands of partners across the country will demonstrate the importance of our nation’s heritage as they focus on many aspects of the preservation movement including historic travel, heritage education, historic homeownership, and community revitalization. Local celebrations will highlight the unique culture and traditions of different areas of the country, and the National Trust strongly encourages people to participate in National Preservation Month events being held in their communities.

It goes with out saying that this applies to archaeological sites as well. For example:

Pueblo, AZ: The archaeologist who’s overseeing a project to record rock art in the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site will speak in Pueblo as part of Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month activities. Lawrence Loendorf will speak on “Pigments of the Imagination: Rock Paintings in Canyon de Chelly, Arizona” at 7 p.m. May 1 at Robert H. Rawlings Public Library.

Cahokia Mounds doesn’t mention anything about it on their website, so I emailed them to find out if they were going to participate….
