Four thousand and thirty-six acres of high-site sensitivity areas and 3,200 acres of medium-site sensitivity areas were inventoried, totaling 7,236 acres. A total of 89 cultural resources were recorded, and 2 previously recorded sites were revisited and reevaluated, bringing the total number of sites to 91. Additionally, 86 isolated finds were recorded. The distribution of recorded sites is as follows 74 81 prehistoric sites, 15 17 historic sites, and 2 2 multicomponent historic and prehistoric sites.
