State of Preservation:
An Evening with the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation
Preserve the ‘Burg welcomes Melissa Wyllie, president and CEO of the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation, and Mark Zubaly, the Trust's legislative affairs chair, for a state-wide look at historic preservation in Florida, a place where preservation efforts can be challenged not only by development pressures but a common notion that “history didn’t happen” in the Sunshine State.
The pair will provide an overview of the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation, the statewide nonprofit committed to preserving Florida’s history and heritage, including its annual “11 to Save” list and how the Trust is working to gain traction on local preservation issues.
Additionally, they will touch on work the Trust is doing to move the needle on preservation at the statewide and national level through advocacy, including advocating for the implementation of a new Florida Historic Tax Credit and lobbying for funding of the Division of Historical Resources preservation grants with the Florida legislature.
This talk will take place outdoors at Green Bench Brewing. Facemasks are encouraged.
$10 for PTB members and $20 for non-members.
Includes a drink ticket and a copy of Preserve the 'Burg’s self-guided walking tour book.
