Proactive Approaches to Heritage at Risk in Florida

Author(s): Sarah Miller

Year: 2020


This is an abstract from the session entitled "Heritage at Risk: Shifting Responses from Reactive to Proactive" , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.

The Florida Public Archaeology Network engaged in a number of reactive approaches to climate change threats on cultural resources in Florida starting in 2013. In 2016, FPAN shifted to a proactive model under the Heritage Monitoring Scouts umbrella to include training, increased access to resources, networking for professionals and avocationals, and action in the form of monitoring and 3d sccanning. Since that time, heritage at risk has risen to the top of the list for special projects to receive funding from Florida Division of Historical Resources grants in aid program. In addition, professionals mobilized to form the Coastal Heritage at Risk Taskforce (CHART) and undertake strategic planning for next steps beyond monitoring. This paper will provide the context for the current HMS Florida Heritage at Risk project and share preliminary results for others to consider in statewide proactive approaches to climate change.
