Preventive Conservation 2015: A hands-on study experience
Ossabaw Island, Georgia
January 17-30, 2015

This is a unique opportunity to study and apply preventive
conservation techniques in a historic house on a wilderness barrier
island off the coast of Savannah, Georgia.

Six participants will join six project leaders for this in-depth
experience at the Torrey West House on Ossabaw Island.  The island
is reachable only by chartered boat, and participants will bring
supplies and food from the mainland.  The course is intended for
anyone managing a historic property, and it has been popular with
emerging professionals in the field.

There is no registration fee.  The six selected participants will
provide their own round trip transportation to Savannah, Georgia and
food for meals.  Each participant will receive a small stipend
toward these expenses.  The Ossabaw Island Foundation and FAIC will
provide boat transportation to the island, hotel lodging in Savannah
on the night of Friday, January 16, 2015 and lodging January 17-30,
2015 in the historic "Clubhouse" maintained by the Ossabaw Island
Foundation. Participants will return to Savannah on January 30,

conservation and a resume or c.v. (be sure to include all current
