We will hold our next meeting on Tuesday, May 1, 2018, the first Tuesday of the month, at 7:00 p.m. The meeting will be held at the B. Calvin Jones Center for Archaeology at the Governor Martin House. The Center is located off Lafayette Street, between Seminole Drive and Myers Park Drive, at 1001 De Soto Park Drive. We encourage you to bring a snack to share.

Please join us as we congratulate the Louis Tesar Essay Contest winner, Emilee McGann! Emilee will be presenting her winning essay "Florida's Cultural and Historical Resources: What We've Learned, What We've Earned, and What We May Lose" 

The people of Florida have put great emphasis on historic conservation and archaeological site preservation for the past century. Namely, efforts have been for the purpose of preserving common heritage and economic growth. However, as climate change and sea-level rise progress, many historic and archaeological sites in Florida are at great risk of being lost, damaged, or destroyed. Join me as we explore what we’ve learned and what we’ve earned as a result of past preservation efforts, and what we may lose if we do not prepare for the threat climate change presents.
