Protecting Cultural Resources

Archaeological sites, historic buildings and structures, landscapes, and objects are the fabric of our national heritage.  Collectively known as cultural resources (or sometimes heritage assets), they are our tangible links with the past.  As an agency of the Federal government, Reclamation is responsible for, and committed to, protecting and managing these irreplaceable resources in a spirit of stewardship for future generations to understand and enjoy.
