A Holistic Approach to Protecting the Cultural & Natural Resources

New Report Available

El Camino Real bell

"Expanding the Cultural Conservation Toolbox: New Partnerships and Strategies" was funded by a grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation (NTHP) and San Diego's Save Our Heritage Organisation to de-mystify cultural resources preservation and give land trusts strategies to provide long-term natural and cultural resource protection for their projects. The report describes the issues and actions that can be brought into play to protect cultural resources concurrently while also protecting natural resources. The report shows how protecting cultural resources can strengthen land conservation projects including bringing new financial and legal resources to a transaction.

Prepared by an archaeologist and a land conservation broker, the document outlines general and legal actions that can be used to protect cultural resources and defines the terms and concepts familiar to historians but unfamiliar to many whose conservation focus is natural resources. The authors highlight issues that can occur when land trusts transition their lands to public agencies and suggest the use of deed restrictions, easements and other tools to permanently protect cultural and natural resources.

The report presents case studies where protecting cultural resources helped expand and strengthen a natural resources preservation project. The 45-page report is available as a PDF at
