In 2020, Nantucket Preservation Trust’s annual Preservation Symposium focused on strategies for adaptation to sea-level rise  being developed and implemented both nationally and on Nantucket. We heard from both off-island and on-island preservationists and experts working at the intersection of preservation, planning, economics, and resiliency.

NPT is committed to assisting our community in developing resiliency strategies while protecting the precious resource of our shared historic heritage. Our Preservation Symposium is designed to catalyze inter-disciplinary and cross-community collaboration toward the creation of innovative solutions.

Nantucket Preservation Trust is grateful to our underwriters, partners, speakers, leaders and supporters for their help in making this event possible, and for their support of our ongoing effort to preserve our island’s unique architectural heritage and timeless sense of place.
