Governmental Opportunities for Preserving Heritage Resources

Author(s): Tristan J Harrenstein

Year: 2018


Engaging local governments on preservation issues is challenging for a number of reasons. Perhaps the subject does not interest them, they see heritage as in the way, or they simply have other concerns. To top this off, we can spend a year developing relationships, only to have someone replace them the next election.

The Governmental Opportunities for Preserving Heritage Resources (GOPHR) is a new program by the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) attempting to address this issue. GOPHR is designed to be as easy as possible to participate in. It consists of a series of short (20-45 min), flexible modules that provide an introduction to a variety of preservation topics. As this program is modular, an audience can choose only the specific modules that interest them. Though designed specifically for Florida, GOPHR can easily be adapted to any state in the U.S. and, to some extent, other countries as well.
