Preserving cultural heritage is essential, but it also presents complex challenges we can explore together. Conservators partner with the public to define the needs of cultural heritage objects and advocate for their care. While the end result of conservation is often very public and involves communities in continued stewardship, the work involved has historically not been as visible. Learn more about what conservation is and how you can get involved, and engage with your community about the work being done to preserve cultural heritage at local, national, and international levels.
