Outreach Booth

The Washington Conservation Guild’s outreach booth is available for heritage events in the DC metro area. We do not do appraisals but we do provide volunteers from our membership to staff the booth and offer advice on the care and handling of personal collections. See Outreach Booth for more information.

Angels Projects

Angels Projects are pro-bono work days for which WCG members volunteer their conservation expertise at a particular historic site. They are generally conducted all in one day, although the preparation and follow-up require additional time. See Angels Projects for more information.

Public lectures, school visits, etc.

If you are interested in having a conservator come speak to your group, please contact WCG’s Outreach Chair, Lisa Young, at wcg@washingtonconservationguild.org.
