Description: The BLM is looking to work with a partner to gather information and document historical human land uses from the earliest period of Euro-American settlement to present. The documentation will be used by the BLM to develop educational and interpretative materials that link the landscape, and historic features to an historical context. The rich Euro-American history of the two NCAs has been documented in numerous sources, including personal journal entries, government records, maps, photographs, etc. Several historic studies have been completed by academics, scholars, contractors, and enthusiasts and numerous historic features have been archaeologically documented. A large body of research exists in both published and unpublished formats. This partner will supplement BLMâ¿¿s interpretive and educational programs by assembling a body of historical literature from primary and secondary sources for the two NCAs. This partner will work with the BLM, regional historians, locals, and archaeologists to assemble source material for Euro-American land-use of both NCAs. While there may be some overlapping historic themes, the recipient Principal Investigator will work with students to develop a report and source database for each NCA. Documentation should consist of a final report for each NCA that includes, but is not limited to, a detailed narrative and information resulting from research, organized in a chronological manner. An Excel database for each NCA should also be produced to provide a framework that future researchers can used for detailed historic research. The databases should list historic themes, with a brief description, dates of association, people associated, source(s) of the information, and type of source (e.g. photograph, journal, map, etc.) that the BLM can use to build on in the future.
