HSSC Archaeology Project Described in Two USFWS Publications

Last Fall, the Historical Society conducted a Phase I Archaeological Survey for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) at the location of a proposed Riparian Planting Project along the Rifle River in Arenac County. Andrea Ania, Fish Biologist at the Alpena Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office, and James Myster, Regional Historic Preservation Officer, USFWS, Midwest Region, coauthored an article describing the project and the review process under the Historic Preservation Act of 1966.

Although no significant cultural materials were discovered during the project, they emphasize that historic review of projects is important because it “ensures responsible stewardship and compliance with state and federal laws.” The article has been published in two USFWS publications including Inside Region 3 and Fish Lines.
