Archaeology and Cultural Awareness Day
October 21, 2017
11:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m.
Archaeology Month is a national program to promote the preservation of our country’s heritage. The Clarke Historical Museum will offer a free day to celebrate this important program. The museum is partnering with CA State Parks, Redwood National Park, and Humboldt State University Anthropology Club, as well as local volunteers and artisans, to provide demonstrations on local native American basket weaving, flint knapping (how to make stone tools and blades), indoor and outdoor activities for all ages, and make & take art projects.
While the event is taking place inside, we will also have the street in front of the museum blocked off for a street fair. Along with other refreshments, we will be selling Indian Tacos and there will be several vendors selling handicrafts at the event. This is a free all ages event, so bring the whole family.
Sponsored by the California Society of Archaeology, Coldwell Banker Cutten Realty, Kohl's, Hilfiker, HSU, Times Printing, and KIEM.
