    Geophysical survey has become an increasingly common tool in Cultural Resource Management (CRM) and is relevant to the ACRA community because it may represent an efficient use of technology to streamline National Historic Preservation Act (NRHP) Section 106 compliance. In today’s uncertain regulatory climate, ACRA firms must find ways to meet client goals using best practices, and geophysical survey may help to that end. The course will outline how geophysical survey can be used in CRM, provide clearly identified learning objectives and overviews of different methods/techniques, give baseline information on staff/equipment needs to develop an internal program, and offer case studies highlighting various applications.

    Expert providers: Shawn Patch and Sarah Lowry, both with New South Associates, Inc. (New South) will serve as presenters. Both Patch and Lowry have extensive experience with archaeological geophysical survey in CRM as demonstrated through a combination of formal education, completion of continuing education training and workshops, direct project experience related to Section 106 and Section 110 of the NHPA, peer-reviewed publications, presentations at local, state, and national meetings, and technical reports. With respect to geophysical survey, Patch has 14 years experience and Lowry has ten, and they have team-taught a field school in geophysical survey for the Tennessee Valley Authority and its federally-recognized Native American partners.

    Large-scale federal projects and their effects to historic landscapes are challenging Section 106 participants to look beyond tried-and-true mitigation approaches. Consider ways to develop innovative ideas for resolving adverse effects in the consultation process during this webinar. The session will highlight examples of big picture mitigation strategies that focus on project-scale outcomes. Participants will have an opportunity to apply their own creativity to a situation that begs for something beyond the typical historical documentation approach.

    This webinar was designed and developed by the President's Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, which is an independent federal agency that promotes the preservation, enhancement, and productive use of our nation's historic resources, and advises the President and Congress on national historic preservation policy. The expert providers for this webinar are Nancy Brown and Chris Wilson, and will be facilitated by Katry Harris. Nancy J. Brown, ASLA, brings a background in both Section 106 and cultural landscapes to the ACHP. A historical landscape architect, Nancy holds a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Virginia and has worked for the university, the National Park Service, and the Olmsted Center for Landscape Preservation. She currently serves as the ACHP liaison to the Bureau of Land Management, where she is actively involved in energy, transmission, grazing, and off-highway travel projects. Chris Wilson joined ACHP in 2010 after serving as the Project Manager of the Historic Sites and Districts Plan for Prince George’s County, Maryland. He has also served as a Historic Preservation analyst for both the St. Louis Heritage and Urban Design Commission and Jefferson County, Kentucky, a Historic Preservation Statewide Coordinator for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, a Cultural Resource Manager at Fort Belvoir, a Curator of Buildings and Grounds for the Tudor Place Foundation, the County Planning Director for Yates County, New York and Architectural Historian for Edwards Air Force Base.
