Anne Carter Fund
Anne Carter was a self proclaimed "rock art junkie." She dedicated much of her life to recording and photographing these amazing petroglyph and pictograph sites across Nevada especially in Lincoln County. She was a founding member of the Nevada Site Stewardship Program and was a volunteer regional coordinator until her passing in January of 2017. She has left behind a legacy of information and her dedication has been an inspiration to many.
Donations made to the fund will be utilized to fund projects related to Anne's legacy and passion. Nevadans for Cultural Preservation works closely with the Nevada Site Stewardship Program and will ensure the funds are appropriately spent.
$2,000.00 a year to cover expenses for field projects.
This fund has been used to record baselines* of rock writing sites in Rainbow Canyon between Caliente and Elgin, as well as a number of sites to the west of Alamo in the Shooting Gallery Archaeological District. We look forward to more baseline projects.
*Baselines contain current photographs, location information, and condition information. NVFCP also provides recommendations for preservation and monitoring. These reports assist land managers and the Nevada Site Stewardship Program in caring for the sites.
All donors, that provide contact information, will be informed of the projects so they can see how the fund is continuing to support preservation efforts.
