San Francisco, CA (April 9, 2012) – The California Preservation Foundation (CPF) will host its 37th Annual California Preservation Conference – Old Roots, New Growth: Cultivating Communities – May 3-6, 2012, in Oakland.
The California Preservation Conference provides a once-a-year opportunity for professionals and grass-roots community organizers to learn about new and on-going preservation initiatives and activities throughout the state. Participants enjoy an opportunity to network, while sponsors and volunteers benefit from contributing to the success of this not-to-be-missed statewide historic preservation event.
Of special interest to the Alameda community are three local study tours scheduled May 3rd that include Alameda locations. Alameda Theater is featured in a tour called “From Fox to Pfluegar: Golden Age of Theaters”. The Meyers House is included in”Ground-breaking Women at Three Restored East Bay Historic Houses”. “WWII to Present: Reusing Structures of the Past” will be a combination bus, home and walking tour narrated by Dick Rutter at Alameda Naval Air Station. Participants may select either a visit to The Hornet or a wine tasting tour at Rock Wall. All three tours will cost $40 each and registration for the conference is not required.
