Petrified Forest Celebrates National Preservation Month - May 2008
Petrified Forest— Since the National Trust created Preservation Week in 1971 to spotlight grassroots preservation efforts in America, it has grown into an annual celebration observed by small towns, big cities, state and national parks with events ranging from architectural and historic tours and award ceremonies, educational programs and heritage travel opportunities. Due to its overwhelming popularity, the National Trust has extended the celebration to the entire month of May and declared it Preservation Month to provide an even longer opportunity to celebrate the diverse and unique heritage of our country, enabling more Americans to become involved in the growing preservation movement.
At Petrified Forest, the month will be celebrated with a variety of activities, including:
