Comprehensive Cultural Resource Management Services

Our team of highly qualified and experienced archaeologists, ethnographers, and cultural resource specialists provide assistance with navigating the complexities of the regulatory process with cost-effective management practices and a practical understanding of project requirements and scheduling. Our staff maintains continuous and professional relationships with local, state and federal regulatory agencies and Native American tribal governments, and remains current with all new regulations and practices in relation to the protection and management of cultural resources. JMA serves to protect the sensitive nature of cultural resources with respect to the integrity of the project.

Our cultural resource staff is comprised of individuals with years of experience researching, managing and conducting a wide range of archaeological investigations throughout California. JMA has participated in projects ranging in size from local independent commercial and residential developments, to large-scale multi-jurisdictional projects.
