    Paynes Creek, Belize

    The only known Classic Maya wooden structures are located in Paynes Creek National Park in Belize. The project, led by Louisiana State University Professor, Heather McKillop, will help protect the underwater wooden structures and make information available to area residents and tourists. With the three-year grant from the AIA, McKillop will construct an observational platform and host a series of workshops and talks in the region to raise awareness of the site.
