Consultation Fee Schedule: $65 per hour
EXCERPT: To a considerable degree, legal documents and guidance govern the experiences tribes have in the consultation and mitigation processes. The Rappahannock Tribe would like to see these documents developed along the following principles:
1. It is of great concern to the Rappahannock Tribe that initial project planning and the development of Programmatic Agreements and Memoranda of Agreement prioritize:
a. The maintenance and improvement of environmental conditions, particularly clean water, clean soil, and healthy floral and faunal species;
b. The avoidance of cultural resources, particularly prehistoric and historic Native American resources;
c. The careful mitigation of cultural resources if impacts are unavoidable;
d. Interpretation of any discovered resources to affected tribes, local communities, and regional leadership; and
e. Inclusion of tribal governmental bodies, initiatives like Return to the River, tribal monitoring, and tribal representatives as appropriate to ensure meaningful tribal participation in the process.

I may have found important cultural resources on or near my property. Who should I notify? A good place to start is asking for help at the local level. County libraries, museums, and governments often have reliable information about the history of your region. Contact a Virginia Indian Tribe if you think they are Native American, or more generally the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Historic Resources at (804) 482-6446.
I live in the Lower Rappahannock watershed. Can I get assistance with a living shoreline, rain garden, pollinator garden, or oyster restoration?
