The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest (ASNF) is looking for volunteers to help locate and record archaeological sites during the ASNF's 3rd Annual Sitgreaves Site Location Project! Located in east-central Arizona, the ASNF sits above the Mogollon Rim, an area of Arizona that played an important part in the story of the Southwest and continues to do so today. However, as technology has improved, we have noticed that our data are no longer viable, and we need PIT volunteers to help us remedy that situation! Our project will include hiking over hilly terrain, looking for archaeological sites that have been previously recorded, but that do not have good locational information. Once we find a site, we will photograph, describe, map the area with accurate GPS equipment, and document any artifacts. If we are lucky, we might even find sites that have never been recorded! So, please join us this fall for another "hike into the past!"
