Cultural resources introduction

Cultural Resources Introduction

BLM meets with MAC February 23, 2008

–BLM to work with Native American Advisory Committee (NAAC) on access to Painted Rock

–If permits are required for self-guided access what is the process

BLM meets with NAAC March 15, 2008

–Presented draft preferred alternative for access to Painted Rock (guided tours and self-guided)

–For adaptive management to work in self-guided access permits, we need checks/balances on the system such as law enforcement, surveillance, monitoring etc.

–BLM/NAAC to conduct workshop on July 26, 2008 to develop permit administrative procedures, conditions, and means to ensure permit compliance and site protection

–Subsequent BLM/NAAC workshop to develop rock art preservation plan for Monument


Cultural resources rock art

Cultural ResourcesRock Art

  • All Rock Art

    • No commercial photography of rock art

    • Develop rock art preservation plan in consultation with Native Americans

    • Prioritize patrol and monitoring

  • Painted Rock

    • Provide continued guided tours of Painted Rock

    • Require permit for non-guided visitor access to Painted Rock – Permit will contain information on proper preservation, use ethics, etc. Maximum of 25 visitors in rock alcove at one time. Night-time closure

    • Monitor self guided permit program to ensure that visitors are complying with the stipulations/conditions that protect sensitive cultural resources. If monitoring shows that self guided permit program is not adequately protecting the resources, the program would be modified (e. g. change from self-issued to BLM personnel issued permits, limit times or days of issuance etc.) or discontinued. If the program were discontinued, access would be limited to guided groups only.

    • Allow Native American access for traditional activities

      Other Alternatives: Varying levels of public access and protection/conservation– Including no public access
