What is Preservation50Preservation50 is a year-long celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the passage of the National Historic Preservation Act.  As a federal agency, the U.S. Forest Service is responsible for managing thousands of special places out on the landscape that help tell the stories that are important to the culture and history of our local communities, the larger American public in general, and the Native American Tribes that once called the lands that we now manage their home. 


This year the Southern Region of the U.S. Forest Service highlights its history working with the NHPA in partnership with the fourteen State Historic Preservation Officers, numerous Tribal Historic Preservation Officers and federally-recognized Tribes with ancestral connections to national forest lands, several universities, public land corps, and thousands of volunteers in the southeastern United States and Puerto Rico.
