This presentation highlights the importance of preserving abandoned cemeteries as a way of honoring the past and respecting the legacy of those who came before us.

This program discusses the historical and cultural significance of cemeteries as well as the challenges facing these sites, such as neglect and development. Speakers will share personal stories and explore strategies for preserving and restoring these important landmarks, including community engagement and collaboration with local government and historical groups.
