The 2012 Award for Achievement in Historic Preservation went to the Northern Region of the US Forest Service, headquartered in Missoula.

The award recognized the Region’s Heritage Stewardship Enhancement program that since 2004 has made available almost $2 million to fund over 120 programs. Those projects included things like renovating historic buildings, protect archaeological sites, investigate historical and scientific sites and conduct educational programs.

For instance, last year, 17 projects were funded. One was the investigation of a World War II-era B-17 bomber crash site. Regional Forester Faye Krueger, in a news release, said the work “simply could not have been done without our Heritage Stewardship Enhancement program, and our friends, volunteers and partners.”

The Northern Region includes the Bitterroot National Forest, which has its share of cultural and historical sites on National Forest land.
