Help us update the Colorado Survey Manual

History Colorado is seeking your input as we update our Cultural Resources Survey Manual. We hope to receive feedback from people who regularly complete surveys. The current survey manual contains a wealth of useful information but our goal is to create practical, meaningful, user-friendly guidance, that better reflects current technologies and more closely aligns with National Park Service guidance and Colorado Office of Archaeology & Historic Preservation recommended practices.

Please help us by providing constructive feedback that helps identify who uses the current manual, how they use it, and which sections they find most or least useful.
