Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site is excited to host the next installment of the Summer 2021 Virtual “Lunchbox Lesson” series. Join us on Wednesday, June 23rd at 12 noon for a presentation by Erin Tobin of the Preservation League of New York.
Tobin will discuss the work that the Preservation League does, provide updates on special projects, and share information on how communities and individuals can seek tax credits on their historic structures. She serves as the Preservation League’s Vice President for Policy and Preservation and has been with the League since 2007. Tobin directs all aspects of the League’s Public Policy and Technical Services Programs. Her work includes collaborative pursuit to a statewide policy agenda that advances historic preservation in New York State at the federal, state, and local levels, and builds and maintains a statewide coalition to assist the League in achieving its goals. She also oversees the League’s Technical Services and preservation grants programs, including oversight of the Seven to Save Endangered Properties Program and all preservation workshops and community outreach.
This program is free and offered via Webex. The link is available on our Facebook page, or by contacting Schoharie Crossing. If you are unable to attend the 12pm program, it is slated to be recorded for later online release.
