Guided Training

Learning to Safeguard the Places We Love Together

There are two ways to explore Preserving Legacies training materials: through an all-resource learning database or through a self-guiding training course. Our learning database on this page includes freely accessible lectures, reports, training worksheets, and takeaways to search and use. 

Our self-guided training journey allows users to learn about community values, climate science, site vulnerability, and adaptation approaches sequentially in a five-unit course hosted in our community of practice platform.
