This Place Matters

Celebrate Preservation Month by speaking up for the places that matter most to you

Preservation Month 2016

May is Preservation Month, and this year we're celebrating with three words that say it all: This. Place. Matters.

Everyone has places that are important to them. Places they care about. Places that matter. This Place Matters is national campaign that encourages people to celebrate the places that are meaningful to them and to their communities.

This campaign isn’t just about photography. It’s about telling the stories of the places we can’t live without. Through This Place Matters, we hope to encourage and inspire an ongoing dialogue about the importance of place and preservation in all of our lives.

At the National Trust, we believe that Preservation Month is an excellent opportunity to shine a spotlight on all the special places that are important to you. To help you celebrate, we're sharing some exciting new tips and tricks so you can take your This Place Matters campaign to the next level this May. Follow the steps below to get started!
