BLM-Arizona, AZ Strip District Cultural Resources Support: a. Background:

The Arizona Strip District of the BLM would like to work cooperatively with an organization to carry out archaeological inventory, analysis, and reporting, as well as the collection and processing of oral histories, updating cultural overviews, providing public educational and interpretive presentations and programs, preparing archaeological/cultural/historical publications, site stabilization, testing of archaeological resources where necessary to determine National Register of Historic Places eligibility and assess potential mpacts, and other related tasks in the cultural resource program. This may entail pedestrian inventory of selected areas of the Monuments and Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) where comprehensive cultural resource inventory is lacking and cultural resources are at risk of destruction or impacts. The result will be a much better understanding of cultural resources and their current condition, allow for better development of management practices designed to protect at-risk resources, and provide information for public interpretive presentations and educational experiences. Components of this project include collection of base line cultural resource information regarding site locations, site types, and impacts, as well as monitoring of cultural resource sites. This project will allow the BLM to follow the procedures and goals outlined in the RMPs for cultural resources.

Vermilion Cliffs and Grand Canyon-Parashant national monuments were established to protect the various aspects noted in their Proclamations, in which cultural resources were specifically identified. The ACECs on the Arizona Strip Field Office were designated specifically to protect cultural resources and are at-risk because they are located near local communities that continue to grow. The anticipated recipient of the agreement would be an organization whose efforts are closely aligned with the goals and protections outlined in the RMPs with respect to cultural resources. To adequately protect a resource, the resource in question must be understood in the fullest possible context, and this knowledge shared with the general public. Greater awareness leads to a better understanding of the resource, and appreciation and participation by the public.
