This project represents an opportunity to enter into a cooperative agreement for cultural resources outreach, education and training to further effective cultural resource management on U. S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Project lands.
Stewardship of historic and cultural resources can
be achieved by educating students, Corps staff, and public and private landowners holding outgrant leases, easements or licenses on USACE lands.
A cooperative agreement with an educational institution will provide educational benefits and awareness to college students, interns, volunteers, neighbors, frequent users, the general public and future stewards of the sites, and provide benefits to the community of which these USACE sites are a part.
The program would provide job training, education, and early career development for college-level students in archaeology, anthropology, and natural / cultural resource management.
Students will learn appropriate survey and monitoring methods, field techniques, archival research, regulations and policy, and the latest technology to document and analyze cultural sites and historic properties.
