Archaeology Dig Day

Archaeology Dig Day

Saturday, July 8, 2017 - 9:30am - 3:30pm
Event Location
SERC

The SERC Archaeology Lab is looking for volunteers to help excavate sites on our campus in Edgewater, Maryland. Volunteers will work alongside researchers and citizen scientists to excavate units, sieve sediment, and wash and sort artifacts. 

Pre-registration Required
Yes

Event Details

In general, we ask that participants at the Saturday Dig Days are at least 10 years old. If you have an interested child under the age of 10, please contact me as special permission for younger children may be granted on a case-by-case basis. All volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a participating adult. The general activities in archaeology are fairly straightforward (digging, sieving sediment, washing and sorting artifacts). We provide all training and materials. We work outside on uneven terrain, and ask that participants wear close toed, sturdy shoes.

The dig day will be happening even if it rains, or if it is hot. It if doesn't rain or if it is only drizzling, we will be working outside, so please dress to be comfortable and in clothing that can get dirty. If it does rain, there will be opportunities to work in the lab (close-toed shoes are required in the lab too). 

Please contact Alison Cawood (443-482-2271, cawooda@si.edu) if you would like to sign up.

Summary: With nearly 8,000 acres of mostly forested land, Parkers Creek watershed forms one of the largest sections of unbroken woodlands in Calvert County, Md. Since its formation 30 years ago, the American Chestnut Land Trust has made great strides to protect it. With the help of private land owners and partners, the Trust has preserved over half the watershed (including half of the Prince Frederick Town Center), and worked with scientists from SERC and other organizations to be good stewards of the lands it owns and manages. Executive Director Greg Bowen will discuss the Trust’s successes, and how land trusts can use science to make land use policy for the common good.

SERC's free evening lectures are held every third Tuesday of the month now through October in the Schmidt Conference Center, from 7-8pm. Doors open at 6:30. Lectures are free and open to all—curiosity is the only prerequisite!
