Archaeological Monitoring and Site Stabilization at CA‑SAC‑164
Artifact and burial recovery in consultation with the Native American Community.
CA‑SAC‑164 is managed by the City of Sacramento, Department of Parks and Recreation.
This National Register-eligible prehistoric burial site had been subject to years of disturbances due to river fluctuation/erosion and looting.
From 2002-2010 GrassRoots co-founder, Charlane Gross, monitored the site, recovering artifacts and burials. As burials or artifacts became evident they were collected, cataloged, and reintered in consultation with the Native American community.
In 2005, a team including the USACE, DFG, the Fish and Wildlife Service, SAFCA, and others designed and built site protection measures that simultaneously enhanced and restored the natural environment along this portion of the Sacramento River
