May 18, 2005, Annapolis, MDUndaunted Stewardship, a Montana program created by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Montana Stockgrowers Association, Montana State University, and U.S. Senator Conrad Burns, today received the Chairman's Award for Federal Achievement in Historic Preservation.
The announcement and award presentation took place today in the Maryland State House during the spring business meeting of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP).
"Montana's landscape today vividly recalls the pristine country traversed by the Lewis and Clark expedition 200 years ago, in large measure because of wise stewardship on both private and public lands," said John L. Nau, III, chairman of the ACHP.
"Just as public land stewards protect and
provide reasonable access to sites important to our heritage, private landowners
in Montana are encouraging appropriate heritage travel to historic sites on their
property through the Undaunted Stewardship program while preserving and enhancing
cultural and natural resources. This is a wonderful model for similar partnerships
across the Nation."
Undaunted Stewardship spurs development of management plans. It also assists landowners in creating information kiosks and other interpretive resources for public visitation and education on private lands containing historic sites, and other associated efforts.
