Cultural Heritage Assessment and Monitoring introduces participants to cultural resource management by providing methods of conducting assessments of traditional plants, wildlife and riparian features. In this course we consider pressures on the landscape, the cultural features of the land, and techniques that can be used to protect these features. Additionally, options for both short-term and long-term monitoring are explored with a cultural heritage lens. This program provides practical Inventory skills in the field utilizing visits to heritage, local, and community locations.

The emphasis of this course is on:

  • Cultural Heritage Legislation: Cultural heritage inventories are closely aligned to archeology assessments and this course provides understanding around the legislation differences of both. Also considered are “Living Culture” and historical use of the land and water.
  • Research Tools: Tools to collect data or information are described: these include accessing archive information, interviews, detailed mapping, GIS, LIDAR data, and satellite and drone images for cultural heritage research.
  • Cultural Heritage Assessments: For conducting assessments, we discuss different survey methods and complete hands-on exercises in plant, wildlife, cultural heritage, and riparian feature inventories.
  • Cultural Heritage Protection Techniques: Some methods, from the sharing of knowledge of what other communities and industries are undertaking, to protect cultural heritage are provided.
  • Cultural Heritage Monitoring: Monitoring cultural heritage features is important and is described using historical and leading-edge technologies such as monitoring software, drones, trail cameras, photo-point monitoring and videography.
