Governmental Opportunities for Preserving Heritage Resources Educational Event

Alachua County Historical Commission is hosting the Florida Public Archeology Network (FPAN) for a Governmental Opportunities for Preserving Heritage Resources (GOPHR) educational event. The GOPHR event is on Saturday, September 15, 2018, from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Freedom Center at Veterans Memorial Park (7400 S.W. 41st Place, Gainesville). The event is free, but participants should RSVP and bring their own lunch.

The event is presented by FPAN Public Archaeology Coordinator Tristan Harrenstein. This GOPHR program is designed to inform local governments and heritage groups about the opportunities and complications associated with preserving and utilizing archaeological and historical sites, provides a general understanding of preservation and heritage tourism topics, and the tools to pursue them further. A printed booklet and a matching USB or CD with supplemental materials (i.e. laws, examples, contacts, further reading) will be provided to participants who RSVP in advance.

Participants must RSVP by September 12, to FPAN Central Region Public Archaeology Coordinator Nigel Rudolph at
