Developing Site Stewardship and Monitoring Programs
October 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Heritage managers increasingly rely on dedicated volunteers and concerned stakeholders to serve as citizen scientists in the field, assisting with non-disturbance monitoring and recording of sites threatened by looting, erosion, development, sea level rise, and climate change. FPAN has had success in creating and executing such programs, both on land and underwater. Sarah Miller and Della Scott Ireton will discuss the impetus for FPAN’s programs, as well as the development of training curricula, promotion and marketing, partnering with other agencies, dealing with data, and on-going strategies for attracting, training, and retaining participants. Sustainability is a factor to consider, therefore challenges and opportunities for sustaining these kinds of programs also will be addressed.
