This workshop, cosponsored by the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation and the National Park Service, provided participants an opportunity to examine a range of landscapes and landscape issues, and become familiar with programs and agencies with cultural landscape interests.
Western landscapes are iconic among the nation's landscapes. They are celebrated and referenced in many cultural expressions...
Agenda items included the integration of landscape considerations into surveys and National Register nominations; archaeology as a component of cultural landscapes; traditional cultural places; linear resources; designed landscapes; ranches; Hispanic/Latino landscapes; and other topics. Challenges facing stewards of large tracts of land were confronted, including sustainability and the impact of energy initiatives. The agenda was targeted to include topics that appealed to staffs of state, federal, tribal, and local preservation programs and other stewards of cultural landscapes.
