Volunteers Welcome for Archaeology Week Projects


Anyone interested in archaeology of the Great Basin along the California-Nevada border is welcome to join the Bureau of Land Management Eagle Lake Field Office for its inaugural Archaeology Volunteer Week, June 9 through 13.

Participants will join BLM archaeologists in archaeological survey and recording work in the high desert northeast of Susanville. They will also learn about the history and pre-history of the region.

The BLM will provide free camping and a barbecue celebration to wrap up the week.

For information or to sign up, contact Marilla Baker at the BLM in Susanville, (530) 252-5307, or send an email message to mmbaker@blm.gov.

Participants will be required to provide their own camping equipment, food and beverages for the week, and must provide their own transportation to the campground.

The BLM will provide survey equipment and transport volunteers from the campground to the project site.
