This Place Matters

May is Preservation Month! Celebrate with #ThisPlaceMatters.

May is Preservation Month, and we are ready to celebrate! Everyone has places that are important to them. Places they care about. Places that matter. This Place Matters is a national campaign that encourages people to celebrate the places that are meaningful to them and to their communities, and Preservation Month is the perfect time to share it with the world.

As you spread the word about Preservation Month, make sure to use the #ThisPlaceMatters hashtag. Also check out the National Trust on Facebook for more cool tools to help you show your love.

This campaign isn’t just about photography, after all. 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 that lasts far beyond the month of May.

At the National Trust, we want to help you shine a spotlight on all the special places that are important to you. And to get you started, we're sharing exciting tips and tools so you can take your This Place Matters campaign to the next level. Follow the steps below to begin!
