Oregon Archaeology Celebration organizers seek submissions for events calendar

The 2016 Oregon Archaeology Celebration is not until October, but organizers have already put out a call for submissions to the OAC’s events calendar.

Deadline for submitting info about events is June 17.

Events can be about more than just archaeology and focus on related subjects, such as history, paleontology and traditional crafts. Exhibits, talks, tours, demonstrations, performances and classes can be included as long as they help people learn about Oregon’s heritage.

Oregon Archaeological Society, Oregon’s State Historic Preservation Office and other organizations are involved in the celebration, which aims to inform people about the state’s history and prehistoric past.

Although OAC will formally run from Oct. 1 to 31, submission of events that start as early Sept. 1 is welcome. Early bird activities will be included in the calendar listings as space permits.

For more information and to get a form you can use to submit your event information, contact John Pouley, assistant state archaeologist with Oregon SHPO, at John.Pouley@oregon.gov, or Leslie Hickerson, an archaeologist with the U.S. Forest Service, at lmhicker@q.com.
