Tools for conservation

What are the benefits of designation? | How do I repair windows in my heritage home? | Why is archaeology important? | What is a cultural landscape? | Where can I find information on the history of a building? | How can I save a heritage building in my community? | What are the dangers of using rock salt on the sidewalks around heritage buildings in the winter?

After having been introduced to the buildings held by the Trust, and the various properties protected by Trust conservation easements, you may wish to know more about common heritage issues and topics that affect how and why we choose to conserve heritage properties – and to help you in your own conservation efforts.

The following tools are available for download. Check this page often, as more tools are being developed and added to our toolkit.
