Part I: Historical In-Use Structures, A Field Guide
8:00am – 10:00am

In this follow-up to last year’s workshop, SHPO and HAAC will present and distribute a field guide to assist in the documentation of historical in-use structures. Among other things, the workshop will clarify when properties should be considered isolates or documented as historical in-use structures, and review reporting requirements.

Part II: Working with Arizona State Museum Mandated Programs and the Arizona Antiquities Act
10:00am – 12:00pm

Arizona State Museum (ASM) administers the Arizona Antiquities Act (AAA, A.R.S. § 41-841 et seq.). Implementing the AAA requires ASM to issue permits for archaeological and paleontological survey, monitoring, and excavation; repository agreements for excavations conducted on state land; and oversee the discovery and repatriation of human remains identified on state (A.R.S. § 41-844) and private (A.R.S. § 41-865) land in Arizona. Members of ASM’s staff will present a program designed to inform archaeological contractors working within AAA reporting and curation standards. This session will also cover the nuances associated with navigating the ASM online quote system and related issues regarding museum practice and process.

Part III: Cultural Resource Compliance Forum – Working Toward Common Sense Cultural Resource Compliance for Rangeland Conservation Projects
1:00pm – 5:00pm

In Part 1 of this session, a panel discussion will address rangeland conservation practices, current cultural resources law and policies, and recently proposed legislative measures intended to streamline cultural resources compliance. Recent efforts on the part of the BLM, Arizona Association of Conservation District, SHPO, and other state and federal agencies to address this issue will be discussed. In Part 2 of this session, all participants will have the opportunity to present ideas and best practices for developing common sense solutions for cultural resources compliance.
