Join us during 2018 for a series of workshops and webinars to learn about funding opportunities from the sources themselves; hear presentations from other organizations who have written successful applications; and tour successful funded projects as a method for de-mystifying the process to inspire heritage sites to apply for their own potential preservation projects.

Greater Hudson Heritage Network (GHHN) is excited to offer these programs - in partnership with the Preservation League of New York State (PLNYS) and funded by the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area/Hudson River Valley Greenway (HRVNHA/HRVG).

Registration is Now Open!
Finding Funds for All Your Collections Management Needs
Workshop: Thursday, March 8
Roosevelt-Vanderbilt NHS, Hyde Park
GHHN Members: $45  NonMembers: $55
9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Mold, insects, and rodents cause considerable damage to museum, library, and archival collections. Unfortunately, infestations are not usually limited to one collection type, but can spread... to textiles, leather, paper, photographs, baskets, furs, and wooden objects. During a special site tour of the Vanderbilt Mansion, conservator Donia Conn will help attendees learn to identify a range of common insect and rodent pests; how to identify active and inactive mold; and how to prevent and respond to infestations on a small budget.  Afterwards, we will focus on identifying grant opportunities for the preservation and conservation of damaged or endangered collections and historic interiors from state, federal, and foundation funding sources.  Workshop fee includes a lite breakfast, networking luncheon, resource materials, and a site tour.
