For Our Clients!

horizontal rule

Our services include cultural resources and archival records searches, Phase I pedestrian inventories, Phase II significance evaluations and Phase III data recovery projects. These services are provided to fulfill compliance obligations as outlined under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and/or Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended, and its implementing regulations (36 CFR 800).

We would appreciate the opportunity to quote on your project and any future projects for which our services would fit your needs. As a not-for-profit training center, we can provide these services at extremely reasonable rates.

Our principals are all members of the Register of Professional Archaeologists and we hold a valid Bureau of Land Management permit. CAR has been active in cultural resource management (CRM) in southern and central California for almost 20 years, completing more than 700 CRM projects.

Historical Resources Records Searches


Historical Resources Records Searches can be performed at any of the California HRIC branches. We are proud of our prompt response to client needs and offer this service at a very competitive rate.
Phase I/Pedestrian Inventory Surveys


From small private parcels to large residential and industrial development project areas, we are proud of our ability to perform timely and cost-efficient surveys followed by quality technical reports.
Phase II Test Excavations


Phase II excavations are required to determine potential significance of archaeological sites. We have performed Phase II testing throughout the southern San Joaquin Valley, the southern Sierra Nevada, the western Mojave Desert, and in other locations as needed.
Project Mitigation


Project mitigation activities include professional consultation for our clients, mitigation plan development, on-site project monitoring for potential archaeological site discovery, and Phase III data recovery as needed.
Architectural History


CAR conducts historical research for the preparation of occupation histories (including resource inventories) via the examination of primary and secondary sources, legal documents, and oral histories.
Section 106 and CEQA Consultation


The CAR staff has over 55 years of experience providing consultation for our clients in the intricacies of Section 106, CEQA and other state and federal compliance issues.
