Can you dig it? Archaeological site tours open to the public

Have you ever wanted to get a hands-on experience with archaeology?

CSU and the City of Fort Collins are combining to give you a chance to observe students working an active site while learning some of the ins and outs of archaeology through its archaeological dig site tours. The tours, set for June 23, June 28 and July 5, are free and open to the public.

CSU archaeologist leads tour

The tours are led by Jason LaBelle, associate professor of archaeology at CSU, and his students. Participants will learn about Native Americans who lived in this area 1,200 years ago, and be able to observe students actively excavating a site at the Fossil Creek Wetland Natural Area.

Participants must register in advance; each tour will have a minimum of five and a maximum of 20 people.

Registration and additional information is available through the City of Fort Collins website. Information about supporting a student in the Archaeology Field School by making a contribution to Anthropology Field School Scholarships is available online.
