Management and Mitigation Along the Iditarod National Historic Trail
Author(s): Jenny H Blanchard
This is an abstract from the "Reflections, Practice, and Ethics in Historical Archaeology" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.
Long linear resources like National Historic Trails are a challenge in terms of assessing and mitigating effects under Section 106. NHTs present an additional challenge in terms of the common disparity between the congressionally designated corridor and the physical cultural resources on the ground. This paper discusses recent Undertakings along the Iditarod NHT in Alaska and how we at the BLM have addressed both individual project compliance and comprehensive management of the INHT. I will discuss what we have done in terms of assessing integrity and NRHP eligibility, as well as assessing and mitigating effects under Section 106 for this unique resource.
