The primary objective of the project was to complete an historical resources assessment to identify key sites and areas as well as propose a planning process for the future. The assessment identified key sites and areas and highlighted potential impacts to historical resources and recommended a plan of action. The project developed operational guidelines and procedures for use in the planning process to manage and mitigate significant historical resources impacts. These operational guidelines and procedures enhance the management of historical resources within the Weldwood FMA in the foothills region of west-central Alberta. The project results are contained in a final project report entitled, “Weldwood (Hinton Division) Forest Management Area Historical Resources Overview/Assessment and Proposed Management Plan Final Report”, prepared by Dr. Brian O.K. Reeves and Claire Bourges of Lifeways of Canada Limited, January 2002.
