The purpose of the archeological survey was the discovery and recording of archeological sites in four proposed areas to be affected by removal of "exotic" vegetation (i.e., osage orange and cedar trees) by heavy machinery. The survey was conducted in compliance with Federal legislation and Executive Order 11593, designed to protect and enhance archeological, historical, and architectural resources which might be adversely affected by projects supported by Federal funds or requiring

Federal permits or licenses.
