    Learn the proper way to record a BLM rock art site so it will become part of the permanent and official record in the Utah State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) database. We’ll have a brief orientation in the morning at the Museum, and then we will be working outside the majority of the day on sites in the Green River area. We will work in teams to complete every section of a site report multiple times so that by the end of the day you will feel comfortable with the entire process. Our completed site forms will be submitted as the final site record to the Bureau of Land Management and SHPO.  

    Leader: Leigh Grench  435-259-2114,  lgrench@blm.gov

    Maximum Number of Participants:  10

    Things to Bring: Field chair, sun protection, lunch and water. All equipment and forms will be provided.

    Difficulty Level: Three of four sites that we will document are located within a quarter-mile of gravel road near Green River. Reaching these sites will require hiking across a wash on foot.  Accessing the fourth may require a short scramble to a cliff face. The sites will not have restrooms, water, or shade.  Participants must prepare accordingly.

    This workshop is intended for people who have site information they would like to contribute to the URARA site database. The class will be useful for people with any of the following types of site data:

    • Dots on a paper topo map
    • Notes that include GPS information
    • Photos that have embedded GPS information or data that can be exported from a GPS device

    Workshop Leader: Troy Scotter  troyscotter@gmail.com

    Maximum Number of Participants: No max

    Things to Bring: Bring your site location data (maps, notebooks, gpx files or photos with embedded data) and a laptop computer or tablet if you have one. Wifi will be available.

    Difficulty Level: This class will be held at the museum.

    1:00 pm: Dots on a map. You will be introduced to a free website you can use to re-enter your dots and then export that information in a format that URARA can use. If you have your own laptop you may remain in the class all afternoon to work on your own data. Otherwise, you will get some training and a handout that you can use at home.

    2:00 pm:  Notes that include GPS information. You will receive one-on-one help to develop a solution that works for you to translate your written notes to an electronic version. You may stay with the class for the rest of the afternoon to enter your data if you have a laptop. Otherwise you will receive a template that you can use at home.

    3:00 pm: Photos with embedded GPS information or data on a GPS device. If you have your photos with you we will test to ensure that there is embedded GPS information and then transfer the photos to a computer. If you are unsure how to provide this kind of information to URARA this is a good time to ask questions about how you might start.


    Time and Location:  John Wesley Powell Museum Auditorium, 1pm to 4pm.  See description for staggered times.
