The Dry Stone Conservancy (DSC) is a 501(c)(3) organization and the only organization in the country devoted to dry stone masonry. Your contribution helps our mission to preserve unique, historic rock fences.
Why should we worry? Historic fences are consumed by development, road-widening, and neglect and are hauled away, buried, or ground into road rock. There is a severe shortage of skilled dry stone masons compounded by scarcity of accurate how-to-information.
The Conservancy has conducted training and restoration projects for National Park Service personnel in 20 states and has provided advice and consultations in 35 other states. We have contributed expertise to projects in architecture, engineering, conservation, preservation, history, geography, job development, and tourism.
