The Umpqua National Forest is looking for volunteers this upcoming summer for "Part II" of our unique archaeological excavation project! This year, as we explore and evaluate several newly discovered sites, we'll once again study archaeological phenomena in the surrounding area that represent 8,000 years of occupation and use! This year, we will excavate up to 5 cubic meters of material in order to acquire dates for the sites, and to determine what types of activities were being performed. After work, volunteers will get the opportunity to explore the many sites, vistas, and unique features of the area, such as the geology of the river corridor, waterfalls, and biking and hiking trails - we can't wait to see you in July!
