Identification and Management of Traditional Cultural Places

October 24-25, 2013

“Traditional cultural places” (TCPs) are important for the roles they play in community cultural traditions, beliefs, and activities. They must be considered in planning under the National Environmental Policy Act, the National Historic Preservation Act, Executive Orders 12898 and 13007, and other authorities. This seminar explores definitions and methods of identifying and managing impacts on TCPs.

Explore a holistic stewardship approach to an integrated management strategy for cultural and natural resources on public and private lands.
