The JBER Cultural Resources Program manages and promotes the preservation and productive use of significant historic buildings, cultural landscapes, and archeological and sacred sites. Activities that cause ground disturbance can alter or destroy cultural resources. New facilities construction, clearing of vegetation, military training and live fire activities, looting and theft all pose threats to cultural resources and must be managed accordingly.
One of JBER’s most famous cultural resources is Nike Site Summit, which can be seen from base atop Mount Gordon Lyon. Explore the history of Nike Site Summit.
A vast amount of archaeological sites can be found on JBER. These sites, and all archaeological resources on JBER, are managed and protected by policy directives and federal law. If you encounter something that may be of archaeological or historic importance, contact Cultural Resources (907‐384‐3467). To report vandalism, please contact Security Forces (907‐552‐3421).
