Sarah Kautz, an archaeologist, historical anthropologist, and preservation advocate, will speak on Saturday at 10 a.m. about "best practices and models for historic preservation in the context of Wainscott."

According to the Wainscott Heritage Project, Ms. Kautz believes that "we can achieve growth and prosperity without destroying our shared resources to make way for poorly designed, insensitive redevelopment in our communities."

A question-and-answer session will follow her remarks.

The event is to be held at the Wainscott Chapel on the hamlet's Main Street and is free to attend, though advance sign-up is encouraged. The email address for that is [email protected].
