Hi Everyone,

I am working on a plan to learn what priorities various landscape level cultural resource stakeholders have in the South Atlantic LCC.  The plan involves reaching out to two large national cultural heritage corridor organizations (The Gullah Geechee and the South Carolina Corridor), the State Historic Preservation Offices, The Catawba tribe, and some non-profits working on the landscape scale.  Last month Ginger Deason and I attended the Guullah Geechee Commission meeting and learned about their new management plan which lists resources of importance to the Gullah Geechee Corridor.  On August 8th and 9th, I and our new intern Hillary Cole will attend the Southeastern State Historic Preservation Officers meeting in Asheville, NC.  Ginger and I have been working collaboratively with the State of North Carolina and the National Park Service to convene the meeting.  We will begin the meeting with a presentation about LCCs in general and a workshop to learn State Historic Preservation Office cultural resource priorities and ways work collaboratively toward their conservation
