Program Management:
Master Recreation Plan
Gladesmen Ethnographic Study
Final - June 2011

The Corps of Engineers invites the public to provide comments on the final study "You Just Can’t Live Without It” Ethnographic Study and Evaluation of Traditional Cultural Properties of the Modern Gladesmen Culture, Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP), South Florida. The 30 day public comment period ends July 27, 2011.

The Corps welcomes comments on the FINAL document as the Corps prepares to make its determination, in compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, about the existence of Traditional Cultural Properties as defined by the National Register of Historic Places criteria.

This study was conducted because the Corps received comments that there were "traditional cultural properties" associated with the Gladesmen culture that may be affected by CERP during public meetings for the CERP Master Recreation Plan. Traditional Cultural Properties are historic sites that maintain a continued (at least 50 years) association with living cultures. In order to ensure compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act the Corps commissioned the ethnographic study of the self identified Gladesmen culture to determine if such traditional cultural properties that may be eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places exist within the CERP project area. Comments received in 2009 on the draft report were used to develop this final report.
