Cardno's cultural resources team in Tampa, Florida takes on a diverse range of challenging and rewarding projects. In the past several years we have provided cultural resource services for very large linear pipeline surveys, solar fields, residential developments, wetland restorations, streetcar lines, major urban redevelopments, and the excavation of numerous cemeteries. Our exciting work has allowed us to work closely with tribes to protect and manage resources of great importance to tribal heritage. Recently, we have worked to uncover locations and conduct non-invasive excavations of erased Black cemeteries in Tampa Bay (Zion, North Greenwood, St. Matthew's Baptist). This work has allowed us to collaborate with and provide important information to local African American communities.
