EBRPD 2018 Partial Response:
In 2011 the Park district was considering the development of a Cultural Resource Management Plan for the Morgan Territory area. This Plan was not developed and the Park District has no intention of doing so at this time.
CCWD 2018 Partial Response:
The location of specific cultural sites is confidential, and access is restricted. CCWD is not interested in opening these protected areas to the public or developing the area into a visitor attraction.
Grazing in or near culturally sensitive areas is conducted in a way that minimizes or avoids impact to the resources.
