This record group documents the activities of the Mission Olive Preservation, Restoration, and Education Project and includes
adminstrative records, organizational documents, publicity materials, photographs, and educational materials about growing
and preserving mission olive trees.
The Mission Olive Preservation, Restoration, and Education Project (MOPREP) was established in 1998 to preserve historical
knowledge and provide horticultural expertise to the California missions about their heritage olive trees. Its goals were
to preserve a cultural link to the California Mission olive tree for the purpose of general public education and enjoyment
of the historical significance, culinary heritage, and health benefits of the Mission Olive tree and its oil.
