Public Service & Education

Public Service

The role and importance of historical preservation is expressed in language of the 1966 National Historic Preservation Act, which declares that “the spirit and direction of the Nation are founded upon and reflected in its historic heritage…and the cultural foundations of the Nation should be preserved as a living part of our community life and development in order to give a sense of orientation to the American people…the preservation of this irreplaceable heritage is in the public interest so that its vital legacy of cultural, educational, aesthetic, inspirational, economic, and energy benefits will be maintained and enriched for future generations of Americans” (16 U.S.C. 470(b)).

Pacific Legacy is dedicated to furthering the goals of historic preservation and assisting our clients to meet their regulatory mandates so that our modern society and our prehistoric and historical resources can exist in productive harmony, fulfilling the social and economic needs of present and future generations.

Education

The goal of historical preservation is to ensure that the vital legacy of our cultural heritage is preserved for, and appreciated by, the American people. The results of historical preservation activities must be made available to the general public in order for this goal to be realized. Education and public interpretation are critical to these historical preservation efforts. Pacific Legacy works hard to make our results available and understandable to the general public through multimedia presentations, participation in public presentations, sponsorship of workshops, and participation as instructors for university and educational seminars on historical preservation.

Our involvement in historical preservation education is exemplified by Principal Robert Jackson’s teaching of historic preservation law classes during the past 18 years for: the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation; Department of Defense; University of Nevada, Reno; National Park Service; and currently the National Preservation Institute.
