Spirits Alive - Stone Conservation Day*

  • 04 Jun 2016
  • 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM
  • Eastern Cemetery, Portland, Maine

Our first conservation day of the season is coming! The emphasis on this day is to orient new volunteers to the Eastern Cemetery and the practice of basic stone conservation, but all volunteers are welcome! We will:

  • Cover safety practices
  • Assess stones and find out if they have a need for conservation
  • Conduct straightening and cleaning of stones

Please wear long pants (or layers), sturdy shoes, and a hat. Your own gardening gloves are a bonus, but we have extras if you need them. 

Find how we do conservation and how you, with the knowledge gained from this hands-on conservation day, can help us in Eastern Cemetery, or help improve the stones in your own local cemetery.

See Spirits Alive website for additional information.
