Archaeopalooza Celebrates California Archaeology Month on Oct. 1
Archaeopalooza is a free, family friendly program to celebrate California Archaeology Month and is a tribute to the Desert Institute’s long-time instructor, Daniel McCarthy. There will be ongoing lectures on archaeological topics in the lecture hall along with 20 community outreach tables in the adjoining gymnasium.
Programs for children include an archaeology “dig box”, archaeological artifacts for “show-and-tell”, a variety of games provided by rangers from Joshua Tree National Park, and pinch pot demonstrations provided by Tony Soares. This is a great event to teach young people about the science of archaeology and the native Americans who live in the Southern California deserts.
This event is sponsored by Copper Mountain Community College District.
