We are an all volunteer organization that works with local landowners to investigate and record prehistoric and historic archeological sites on their property; and with local organizations, schools and colleges to teach about the archeology of the area. We also provide a venue for the students and general public to become involved with studying and recording the remains of those who came before us.
