Welcome to the Creative Mitigation, Interpretation, and Public Outreach website.
The U.S. Marine Corps, the Department of Defense Legacy Resources Management Program, and HDR, Inc. seek your help in gathering examples of creative cultural resource/historic preservation mitigation, public outreach, and interpretation projects.
Do you know of or have you been involved with:
- An effective project used to creatively mitigate adverse effects on an historic property?
- A cultural resource(s) that has been interpreted in an creatively informative and engaging way to the public – on-site at the cultural resource, or through print publication (booklet/brochure), or digital media (podcast, website/page, multi-media, etc.), exhibit, or tour, or other means?
- An event that was effective in engaging the public in history or preservation of a cultural resource?
- An effective partnership of groups or agencies that have worked together to promote the public’s knowledge and appreciation of a cultural resource?
Projects need not fit the above categories so long as they effectively engaged the public in history and historic preservation of one or more cultural resources. Projects also do not have to be DoD projects.
Projects with information submitted to us will be described in an informational source book highlighting best examples and practices for creative mitigation efforts, interpretation of cultural resources, and public outreach.
Click on the Project tab to read more information about the project or click on the Questionnaire tab to share information about your projects, events, or partnerships with us. We will contact you for additional information. You may also email information to email@example.com or send examples in the mail to:
