WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
The South Park Site Steward Program is composed of volunteer site stewards who work in collaboration with public land agencies and private land owners to monitor, protect, and report on the condition of these resources. Our objectives are to:
1. Preserve in perpetuity prehistoric and historic archaeological as well as paleontological resources for the purposes of conservation, scientific study, interpretation, public education, and for their importance to Native peoples.
2. Increase public awareness of the significance and value of heritage resources and of the impact of damage done by artifact hunters and natural processes.
3. Assist with permanent management of monitored sites
4. Deter vandalism by increasing general public awareness that concerned people are watching archaeological sites.
5. Support and encourage high standards of heritage resource preservation throughout the state.
6. Promote better understanding and cooperation among agencies, organizations, tribes, and individuals concerned with the preservation of heritage and natural resources.
