Evaluation Comments

“The entire course was high in quality, importance, and treatment was equal across the board.”

“[I learned] the breadth of ways cultural resources should be incorporated into NEPA; variety of laws, regulations, E.A.s that should be considered.”

“[The seminar] showed me the importance of looking at impacts more broadly both direct and indirect in regards to the cultural environment.”

“[I learned] the difference between NHPA and NEPA and how they come together.”

“[The seminar] provided more exposure to different perspectives than I expected.”
