Here's the latest update and information about this coming Wednesday's local Archeology field trip! If you have contacted me already about attending on Wednesday, just show up and we'll see you there.
If you haven't contacted me yet about this field trip but would like to join us, please email me and let me know your first and last name plus the number of people who will be coming with you. Thanks!
Also, please note that this was originally scheduled for this Tues., the 14th, but that has been changed to Wednesday afternoon. Also note that if you have younger children who might have a harder time focusing for the full two hours, it's okay to leave early. :)
“Screening the Past” Field Trip Information ~ Oregon Archaeology Month Field Trip
We are so excited that your group will be joining the Umpqua National Forest and the Cow Creek Band of the Umpqua Indians for “Screening the Past”, an exciting exploration activity for students.
Date: October 15th
Time: 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Location: 2691 Diamond Lake Blvd., Roseburg, OR 97470
Directions: Heading East on Diamond Lake Blvd/Or-138 the U.S. Forest Service Center will be on your right hand side, just past the Chevron gas station. The Service Center will be located on your right hand side while driving down Diamond Lake Blvd. The entrance sign will have Mylar balloons to make it more identifiable.
Wednesday homeschool and private school groups: Vehicles may enter through the chain link gate to the back of the Service Center to park, unload, and load. There will be someone to guide traffic.
Please plan for weather as we may have rain. Upon arriving and checking in, please have your classes divided into groups no larger than 30. There will be plenty of screens for everyone to help sift for artifacts!
There will still be Forest Service employees working at the Service Center; for the students' safety, we ask that everyone remains in the designated areas and with their groups.
If you have any questions please contact: Chris Kelly (541) 957-3350 or Emily Veale (541) 670-7248.
