Apostle Islands National Lakeshore (APIS) is in the process of planning for a new Visitor Center at Little Sand Bay, involving the removal of the existing structure, and building of two new structures. While much of the project area has been previously disturbed and prior inventory in the general vicinity revealed no significant resources, this project has potential to impact any remaining resources. Archeological investigations were required to determine whether archeological deposits remained, whether any remaining deposits retained integrity, and whether proposed activities were likely to impact them.
