Summary: The proposed federal action is for Southern Oregon University's Laboratory Anthropology to conduct two archaeological field schools on the BLM, Medford District in collaboration with the BLM. The field school involves archaeological survey of the BLM land parcel and recording/evaluating any cultural resources found during survey. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to: 1) generate useful information to help the Medford District BLM and other relevant stakeholders, such as the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) and federally recognized Indian tribes, manage the cultural resource sites located on these BLM managed parcels; 2) provide a "field school" experience in archaeology for Southern Oregon University anthropology students; and 3) contribute research to our understanding of the archaeology of southern Oregon. Activities will occur in the Grants Pass and Glendale Resource Areas of the Medford District BLM.
