The University of Oregon’s 2016 Pacific Northwest Field School (PNWFS) will be held at Mount Rainier National Park in central Washington state. This 20-year tradition has exposed students to hands-on preservation opportunities throughout the American West; and this year will feature four individual one-week sessions each with themes ranging from historic masonry repair, to backcountry preservation techniques. The PNWFS is open to all with an interest in historic preservation; no experience is required. Students may earn 2 graduate level credits applicable to degree programs at their home institutions. Applications are now available, and will be accepted until June 1, 2016. Three scholarship opportunities are possible.
