Tours were created by Kira Harris and Kasey Krok using video, photos, and data collected by field researchers. Field researchers were instrumental in providing guidance so tours genuinely capture the landscape and research conducted there. Claire Mercer, Pam Theodotou, and Jason Cervenec also contributed to the tours.
