The first official historic study of California’s Route 66 will get rolling June 14 to 17 with public presentations along the highway route. Route 66 enthusiasts, historians and community leaders are encouraged to participate.

Representatives from the California Preservation Foundation and the National Park Service Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program, which are sponsoring the survey, will join consultants from Mead & Hunt, which will conduct the study, to discuss the process and the ways interested individuals can participate.

The survey aims to produce documentation that would be used to nominate worthy properties to the National Register of Historic Places.

Here is a list of times, dates and meeting places:

* 6 p.m. June 14, South Pasadena Public Library, 1100 Oxley St., South Pasadena
