Black_Butte_Gravelly_Range_14 By Mike Cline (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0 (], via Wikimedia CommonsJoin us this summer for another "pedestrian reconnaissance" on the Black Butte and Monument Ridge prehistoric archaeological districts! Once again, we will photograph and map sites we encounter, and identify and inventory associated artifacts. Our work this year will address the potential for formal, national nominations and, hopefully, will provide enough information to ensure future studies within both districts' boundaries. The Forest Service will provide all meals, and participants will be exposed to proper archaeological methods, and should come prepared (with cameras, binoculars, etc.) for stunning vistas - the project area is quite remote, but is one of the most beautiful spots in southwestern Montana! We hope to see you for "Part II" of the Black Butte Survey!
