PreserveCast S1E10: Cemetery Preservation with the Coalition to Protect Maryland Burial Sites
04/22/2017 By Meagan Baco
When you picture a historic cemetery, you probably imagine a place that’s calm and serene…when you picture cemetery preservation, the fact is that the work done by folks like our guest this week Eileen McGuckian, of the Coalition to Protect Maryland Burial Sites, requires a lively energy and lots of grassroots enthusiasm.
In that same can-do spirit, our special guest host this week will be preservation Maryland director of communications Meagan Baco. Eileen has got a lot to say so hitting pause would be a grave mistake on this week’s PreserveCast.
