Research, Relevance and Resources; Academic Partners on National Forests
Author(s): Douglas Stephens
Since the establishment of the US Forest Service in 1905 academic partnerships have been essential to the management and understanding of the cultural resources the agency oversees. After the National Historic Preservation Act was passed in 1966 the Forest Service gradually began developing its own program to manage cultural resources changing the relationship between the agency and researchers. This paper explores the changing ways academic research has influenced the Forest Service and how public lands research has perhaps influenced academia.
