The City of Salem and the Salem Preservation Partners announce the second annual conference focusing on climate change impacts to the region’s historic resources. The 1½ day conference will be held in person on September 12th and 13th.
Building on the 2021 inaugural Preservation in a Changing Climate Conference, this year’s event will continue efforts to raise awareness of and discuss adaptation strategies to address climate change impacts on historic buildings, landscapes and neighborhoods. The conference will include an opening night speaker and educational sessions at the Peabody Essex Museum’s Morse Auditorium, tours of historic museum campuses that are addressing the effects of climate change on their historic buildings and a closing reception at The House of the Seven Gables. Keynote speakers from the National Park Service will discuss the new guidelines for adapting historic buildings to flooding. In addition, the City and the Partners are hosting an exhibit on the first floor of the City Hall Annex to highlight current efforts to address climate change impacts on Salem’s historic resources. The exhibit is open to the public during regular City Hall Annex hours.
$30 per person. Advanced registration required.
