How Do I Treat Cultural Resources?
Cultural resources include archaeological and historic sites, artifacts, traditioinal sites and objects used by Native Americans. These are found throughout the state, both above and below ground and above and below water level. Examples of cultural resources include graves, cave or rock shelters, culturally modified trees, tools, cracked rock, shells, shipwrecks, bones, weapons, and many others. Some of these date back thousands of years, and may be invisible to the unknowing eye.
If you believe you have discovered a cultural resource, avoid disturbance and contact the following for assistance:
Contact Forest Practices in the DNR region office where the cultural resources were discovered.
