Funding Opportunity Description: Public lands in Utah are home to many thousands of unique and irreplaceable archaeological, historical, and paleontological resources that represent Utahâ¿¿s 13,000 year human history and millions of years of biological prehistory. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) administers approximately 23 million acres of public land in Utah with eleven local field offices, which are coordinated by the BLM Utah State Office in Salt Lake City ( BLM-Utahâ¿¿s State Officeâ¿¿s Cultural Resources Management and Paleontology Programs coordinate the management, preservation, and outreach efforts for these resources. Cultural Resources Management Program manages and preserves the archaeological and historical locations, structures, and objects that represent a unique component of our national heritage. This program also engages with Native American tribes and the public as stakeholders in these resources. BLM-Utahâ¿¿s Paleontology Program manages and preserves paleontological resources as a fragile, nonrenewable scientific record and an important component of America’s natural heritage. These programs manage these archaeological, historical, and paleontological resources, or â¿¿heritage resources,â¿ for educational, scientific, cultural, and recreational values. The BLM Utah State Officeâ¿¿s Cultural Resource Management and Paleontology Programs are seeking to establish partnerships to collaboratively encourage the public to learn about and engage with heritage resources in Utah, increase volunteer opportunities, increase engagement with Native American tribes, and encourage studies on public lands.
