In honor of the life and work of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Preservation Long Island is partnering with St. John’s Episcopal Church and the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island’s Youth and Young Adult Ministries for the congregation’s 2020 MLK Day of Service on Monday, January 20, 2020, from 10 AM – 12:30 PM.
On February 5th, Preservation Director, Sarah Kautz, will explain how residents can help protect historic places in their communities, and how historic preservation works-or does not work-in different situations.
