Help Protect the Past within the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument!

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is hosting a 2-day heritage site stewardship class hosted within the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument (BSMNM). This class will be provided for people who are interested in becoming archaeological site monitors within BSMNM and on other federal lands.

This opportunity will take place on Saturday, September 28th and Sunday, September 29th. The event is hosted by the California Archaeological Site Stewardship Program (CASSP) and will take place at the UC Davis McLaughlin Reserve from 9-am to 4:30-pm. The class will be hosted at 26775 Morgan Valley Rd, Lower Lake, CA. More information about the CASSP program can be found online at http://www.cassp.org. The first day will include presentations and discussions regarding local archaeology, safety, heritage protection, environmental responsibility, confidentiality, and environmental ethics.  The second day consists of a field trip to practice site visit procedures and recording observations.

Our maximum class size is 25. For those that are interested in participating please supply your name, phone number, and email address to BLM Archaeologist Christopher Lloyd. His contact information is listed below. Please RSVP only if you can attend both days and are interested in helping monitor cultural sites on federal lands. There is a $25 fee for for participation which includes a Society for California Archaeology membership (https://scahome.org/) as well as helps pay for materials. For those that are interested in lessening their commute time for the next day, the McLaughlin Reserve has an established campground at $10 night. There are also several hotels in and around the town of Clear Lake.
