Executive Director Recommendation: Fund

Executive Director Comments: This is a pilot project that trains and coordinates volunteers to monitor vandalized archaeological sites in the spill area. This effort is currently beyond the ability of normal agency management. After FY 98, expenses will be assumed either by volunteer stewards or agency budgets. The final report for the project, which will be prepared in FY 99, will include a program assessment to help other organizations interested in establishing site stewardship programs elsewhere in the spill area. The report will also include a description of how site stewardship programs in these areas will be continued after EVOS funding terminates.
