Our 40-year History of Protecting Historic Places
Forty Years of Organizing the California Preservation Conference
Since 1976, we have held an annual statewide conference where preservationists can gather, exchange ideas, network and organize around important issues.
Three Decades Honoring Iconic Preservation through the Design Awards
The Preservation Design Awards (PDA) honors the accomplishments of architects, engineers, developers, preservation consultants, non-profit organizations, government agencies, and others for outstanding examples of preservation, restoration, rehabilitation, reconstruction, contextual infill, sustainability, cultural resource studies and reports, craftsmanship and preservation technology, and archaeology and interpretive exhibits.
Hundreds of Workshops, Tours, and Online Programs
CPF has educated preservationists on a vast array of historic preservation topics, through our leading on-site and online professional training programs. We equip advocates statewide – and across the country – with the tools they need to protect the places that matter to them.
