Site Gallery

The photo gallery is designed to showcase Sacred Sites Research (SSR) projects and the individuals who have been part of those projects. The primary goal of SSR is to document, evaluate, and analyze North American rock art sites. We complete funded projects for federal and state agencies and non-funded projects, often at sites on private land. Examples of both kinds of projects are shown in the photo gallery.

Sacred Sites Research, Inc. (SSR) undertakes funded projects at competitive costs, but SSR primary personnel do not receive salaries or compensation. Instead we use that money and the assistance of other volunteers to record rock art sites where no funding is available.

Support the protection and preservation of rock art sites. Your tax deductible dollars will be used saving rock art sites.
