Review for Adventures in Preservation, Boulder, CO, USA
I've been interested in historic preservation for a long time, and was considering making a complete life change by dropping my current work and finding a graduate program in the field. I really wanted to know more about what the actual WORK would be like before I took the plunge. I also wanted to see if I couldn't find all the training opportunities in the real world that I'd find in a graduate program. I searched for "volunteer field school" and came across Adventures in Preservation. The name really struck a chord. I love adventures. I care about preservation. I hoped to make it to their Fairfield Plantation trip in Virginia, but the timing was off. Instead, I asked to help the organization in whatever ways that I could, and they responded quickly and kindly. The team didn't hesitate to embrace an enthusiastic volunteer, and they gave me responsibilities that both utilize my existing skill set AND teach me new ones. I'm very proud to be a part of the Adventures in Preservation team. I think the work they do is very important.
