Painted Bluff Restoration Project Honored with Chairman’s Award

   “Congratulations Jannie Loubser! Stratum Unlimited received the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation’s Chairman’s Award for Achievement in Historic Preservation in DC last night, for work done removing graffiti from 125 pictographs at the Painted Bluff site in northeastern Alabama. Proud of you!” writes Susan Loubser.
The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation promotes the preservation, enhancement, and 
sustainable use of our nation’s diverse historic resources, and advises the President
and the Congress on national historic preservation policy.

Chairman’s Award Goes to Painted Bluff Project
ACHP Chairman Milford Wayne Donaldson presented the Chairman’s Award for Achievement in Historic Preservation at an evening reception Nov. 30 to partners who worked on the graffiti removal and camouflage project at Painted Bluff in Alabama. A historic site with pictographs dating back 600 years, Painted Bluff had become a graffiti magnet, and the Tennessee Valley Authority, University of Tennessee, Stratum Unlimited, University of Alabama, Southeastern Climbers Coalition, and 15 federally recognized Indian tribes worked together to restore the character of the bluff. Read more about the award hereView a slide presentation 

Jannie Loubser: “It should be stressed that Stratum was a CO-RECIPIENT, along with the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Alabama Historical Commission, 15 federally- recognized tribes, University of Alabama and University of Tennessee, and local volunteers and rock climbers.”
