A class III cultural resource inventory of a 32 acre area surrounding the AMK Ranch/University of Wyoming-National Park Service Research Center along Jackson Lake was conducted by the Office of the Wyoming State Archaeologist (OWSA) for the National Park Service, Grand Teton National Park. The inventoried area surrounds the 12 acre AMK Ranch Historic District (48TE968), which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was previously inventoried by OWSA in 2001. The project was conducted as a part of a fire fuels reduction program to help protect the AMK Ranch from natural fires. No cultural resources were noted. No further work is recommended, as the fire fuels reduction program will have no adverse effect on the AMK Ranch Historic District. As a result, cultural clearance is recommended with the standard stipulation that should archaeological remains be uncovered during any future construction, the appropriate state and federal regulatory agencies be contacted immediately.
