Immerse yourself in the rustic architecture of Yellowstone National Park while learning from seasoned professionals how to apply preservation treatments, protect, and preserve rustic-style historic structures.
Besides wildlife and geysers, Yellowstone is also home to hundreds of examples of beautiful rustic architecture. Many of these buildings are as loved by park visitors as the incredible natural features. But Yellowstone is also a place where the natural elements are harsh and extreme, the purposing of these facilities is often substantially different from the original intents, and the human activity within the buildings can be incredibly high. This is why the world’s first national park is a perfect place for a conference like this!
This conference is for those historic and rustic architecture practitioners who are looking to build new skills and network with professionals and craftspeople in the field. The conference will provide opportunities to learn and exchange ideas through hands-on experiences, classroom presentations and facilitated dialog.
