About the Conference
Cultural resources help define human history and provide evidence of how people lived, where important events occurred and where traditional ceremonial and social events took place. Forest management activities may take place in potential archeological or historic sites. This workshop will assist forest managers in understanding how to manage for both forestry and cultural resources.
