INFORMATION AND EDUCATION
The division, on a daily basis, provides the public and governmental agencies with technical information and assistance relating to historic preservation programs and processes.
In addition, as staff time and funding allows, the division strives to make information on the historic properties, history, and culture of Hawai`i available to the public.
Schedules permitting, staff members make presentations on topics relating to historic preservation in their area of expertise and on related topics. The majority of such presentations are made to school classes. However, invitations to speak from a wide variety of organizations are honored when possible.
Staff members actively participate in workshops, seminars and conferences on a variety of topics (i.e. Stone Wall-building, Cultural Landscapes, Community-Based Planning, Hawaiian Archaeology). SHPD staff members help plan the annual Hawai`i Archaeology Week celebration and the office participates in National Historic Preservation Week events such as Capital Day Down Capitol Way, and the Historic Hawai`i Foundation (HHF) "preservation" conference held annually in May. For information about HHF's conferences, send e-mail inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (808) 523-2900.
