Landscape-scale Approaches to the Management of Cultural Resources

Friday, October 24, 2014: 1:25 PM-2:55 PM
Hemisphere B (Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center)
Cultural resources embody the history and heritage of people who live(d) on the landscape in recent and remote past. Traditional cultural resource management efforts have focused on individual resources -- historic buildings, archaeological sites, trails, battlefields, etc -- but often have not been integrated with the management of natural resources, and have only seldom been managed at a broader landscape scale. The papers in this session explore ways to integrate cultural and natural resource management, and to do so at the landscape level. The session should be of interest to participants in Landscape Conservation Cooperatives who have been tasked with taking a landscape-scale approach to resource management and planning, as well as other practitioners who see value in taking such a holistic approach.
