Abstract

Southern Nevada’s cultural resources (heritage resources) include archeological remains, sacred sites, historic sites, and cultural landscapes of significance to Native Americans and many other cultural groups. Locating, maintaining, and protecting these special places are part of the mandate of Nevada’s Federal and state agencies. This summary addresses Sub-goal 2.2 in the SNAP Science Research Strategy, which is “To preserve these resources through responsible use of southern Nevada’s lands” (see table 1.1). Cultural resources at risk, risk factors, and needed measures to protect them are discussed, focusing on non-destructive identification, preservation, and protection measures.
