Archeology Outreach Day at Crossroads

Crossroads at Big Creek is designating Oct. 4 as Archeology Outreach Day. At 9 am, 1 and 3 pm, archaeologists will demonstrate the Phase I archaeological survey techniques, while explaining the ethics of archeology, and then participants will have chance to try sifting soil. To be actively involved in the dig, call 746.5895.

At 11 am and 4 pm, flint knapping demonstrations will be presented in the Rock Garden just outside the Collins Learning Center and inside, visitors can visit a “temporary museum” of Indian artifacts found in Door County.

On Oct. 5, many professional archaeologists will conduct a closed-door meeting for the Wisconsin Archaeological Survey (WAS).

The Collins Learning Center at Crossroads, located at 2041 Michigan in Sturgeon Bay, is open 2 – 4:30 pm daily. For more information call 746.5895.
