Duties will include querying and analyzing existing architectural and archeological datasets to identify gaps and assist with the prioritization of resource management activities; collecting information from VT parks pertaining to preservation activities to compile into annual reports; and assisting in the preparation of condition assessments and treatment recommendations for a range of traditional western architectural types including adobe, log, wood frame, and stone and brick masonry with lime and earthen mortars.
