INVENTORY LIST

This inventory list is a searchable spreadsheet of documented sites and potential candidates for HALS documentation in northern California. You can search by name, city, county, and other criteria.

This list of potential sites was compiled by volunteers in 2004. The list needs to be updated regularly (at least once a year) to indicate what sites have had documentation completed.
