Taking Care of History
Original Presentation Date: September 28th, 2022
Presented by David Peterson
Some watershapes have existed for thousands of years. Some have literally fallen apart in just a few decades. Why has new technology failed where seemingly ancient projects have stood the test of time and the challenge of the elements? More importantly, what can watershapers do to inject new life into old projects while maintaining the historical performance, materials and character? Historical preservation is challenging but rewarding and much of this work is being done outside of the watershaping industry even though water is a key element of the project. Tune-in to find out why and how you might get involved with one of these projects.
