The Deering Estate Foundation is pleased to present Resilient Deering Community Workshop on Saturday, February 25th from 8am to 12:30pm inside the Deering Estate Visitor Center Theatre. The event is free and open to the public with registration online

Working with partners at the University of Florida Historic Preservation Program (UFHP) and The Craig Group, the Deering Estate, and Miami-Dade County Parks are collaborating to develop and implement the first of what is envisioned as a multiphase initiative to document the heritage resources of the Estate, prepare a coastal hazard risk assessment, and engage and share the outcomes with various community stakeholders. 

The Deering Estate is a highly significant cultural landscape with many natural and cultural resources including the Stone House – a Mediterranean Revival Style stone structure designed by Coral Gables architect Phineas Paist and completed in 1922. The house and surrounding landscape, including the Boat Basin will be the focus of this initial phase.   

Please join us for a special workshop engaging the public with the Resilient Deering project. This workshop is designed to measure understanding, engage community and support parks stakeholders in planning and designing for adaptation and to raise awareness of the impacts of coastal hazards on the Deering Estate, Miami-Dade County Parks and other coastal heritage sites. Guest speakers will include: James (Jim) Murley, Miami-Dade County Resilience Officer; Angela Schedel, Vice President, Coastal Resilience Planning at Taylor Engineering; Lisa Craig, Preservation Planner & Principal, The Craig Group; Dr. Cleary Larkin, University of Florida Historic Preservation; Dr. Sujin Kim, University of Florida  Historic Preservation; Jennifer Tisthammer, Deering Estate Director and Chief of Conservation, Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation, and Open Spaces; Jeff Ransom, Miami-Dade County Archaeologist; and Kimberly Rose, Preservation Manager, The Craig Group. 

This project is sponsored in part by the Department of State, Division of Historical Resources and the State of Florida. Additional funding is provided by the Deering Estate Foundation and the Charles Deering McCormick Friends of Art Fund.
