Worked with landscape architects and interdisciplinary study team conducting congressionally mandated Special Resource Study to determine the significance, desirability and feasibility of adding Eastern Sites and Segments, in several Mid-Atlantic, Midwest and Southern states, to the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail as a formal Trail extension. Duties involve substantial field survey work and travel and included landscape evaluations, site and segment documentation and field verification of mapped data to support a National Historic Trail Extension feasibility determination based on National Trails System Act criteria. Knowledge of planning principles and cultural landscapes, strong computer, research, writing, and communication skills were vital. Worked with a mobile team environment in variable climatic, topographic, urban and isolated rural environments.
