Join us this summer for a hike through the past on the beautiful Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest! PIT volunteers will join Forest archaeologists to conduct archaeological survey in the Bull Mountain area, which lies between the lower Boulder River Valley to the north and east, and the Whitetail Creek Drainage to the west. These valleys provide relatively easy access from all sides, and would have been a region with abundant and essential resources. Prehistoric occupation of the Bull Mountain area is directly evidenced by a number of recorded occupation and gathering sites, including lithic scatters, rock alignments, pictographs, and remains of wikiup structures. Other, similar sites are rumored by local sources to exist here, and the range is ripe for archaeological exploration! So, it will be up to us to track down site leads, cover new ground, and monitor recorded sites - we hope to see you in July!
