This is one of four parallel sessions taking place from 8:30 AM - 9:45 AM on Thursday June 2.
Speakers have been asked to pre-record their presentations and we will be releasing these videos to registrants after the Symposium so that you can watch sessions you weren't able to attend.
The Freeze-Thaw Cycle of Federal Landscapes
Speakers will address the issues related to the creation of National Park sites, the re-use of these sites for other public purposes, and the conversion of architecturally significant landscapes to National Parks.
