Heritage Monitoring Scouts (HMS Florida) is a public engagement program focused on tracking changes to archaeological sites at risk, particularly those impacted by climate change in the form of erosion and sea level rise.

If you are already a Heritage Monitoring Scout, sign in. Otherwise, why not join us!


How does it work?

  • Citizens sign up as Heritage Monitoring Scouts, and can begin monitoring Historic Cemeteries and Historic Structures right away!
  • To monitor Archaeological Sites, Scouts must first choose a region of interest, and then wait until an administrator assigns a site to them.
  • Once an Archaeological Site has been assigned to a Scout, that Scout can view the site's location, and log a Scout Visit!

How do I log a visit?

  1. Print out a Mission Sheet
  2. Check the ownership of the site! This is very important.
  3. Once an Archaeological Site has been assigned to a Scout, that Scout can view the site's location, and log a Scout Visit!
