Description: Less than 10% of park lands (7,700 acres) have been inventoried for cultural resources. The National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), and the NPS mission recommend inventory, documentation, and protection of cultural resources for park lands including; archaeological sites, historic structures, history, ethnographic resources, and museum collections. Great Basin Instituteâ¿¿s (GBI) Research Associates (RA) provides technical assistance, research, analysis and data to support the conservation and management of natural and cultural resource in the West. Through research programs, the GBI helps federal land management agencies and other resource-management organizations make sound and informed management decisions. Research projects provide opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, recent graduates, and experienced to begin or enhance their careers in cultural resource management, conservation, stewardship, and related fields. RAs can also provide leadership with project design, coordination, management and follow-through monitoring for projects. This project will enable GBI and NPS to cooperatively identify, document, and protect cultural resources. It will be carried out in phases depending on available funding for specific components. The initial phase includes archeological inventory and documentation of cultural sites at above 8,000 ft. elevation, and preparation of a National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) for a previously documented site. This phase focuses on sites important to management of resources vulnerable to climate change. Later phases will be identified as funding becomes available and may include archeological inventory survey and documentation, history documentation and museum work or other cultural resource management tasks including NRHP documentation.
