The following report presents initial efforts to develop a cultural resources component of the Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) Fire Management Plan. In late summer, 2009, Dr. Robert Brunswig, Director of the University of Northern Colorado's Center for Engaged Research & Civic Action (CERCA), was contracted to work with Park professional staff to plan and conduct a Fire Management Workshop with Park and non-Park experts in fire management and cultural resources from the Park, the National Park Service's Intermountain Agency regional office, other state and federal agencies and universities, Native American tribes, and private cultural resource management (CRM) contractors. That workshop, titled 'Developing Strategies for Managing Fire Effects on Cultural Resources at RMNP', took place on November 18 and 19, 2009, at the Estes Park Stanley Hotel. Results of the workshop were reported to RMNP in a workshop summary document (Brunswig, Butler, and Diggs 2009) in December, 2009. Results from that workshop as well as input from this report's authors are integrated into the content of following sections.
