BLM announced the new field manager for the Tucson Field Office (TFO). Vi Hillman starts in late October.
Here is a link to the input provided for the Resource Management Plan by Dr. Deni Seymour.
Dr. Seymour is the pre-eminent San Pedro River archeologist whose groundbreaking work has rewritten the archeology of our area, including the arrival of the Sobaipuri before the end of the Hohokam era and, similarly, the arrival of the Apache in our area as early as 1300 AD. She has excavated in the SPRNCA at Terrenate and Gaybanipitea and elsewhere. Her books and articles on our area form a body of work that we highly recommend. She has been kind enough to let us share her input with our membership. Her comments on how to preserve and protect the cultural resources of the SPRNCA, presented here, make interesting reading. She has been actively engaged in our area for 30 years and she speaks with authority.
The FSPR Board of Directors has submitted SPRNCA RMP scoping comments to BLM.
