Heritage Monitoring Scout Training

Wednesday February 28th  8:30 am – 2:30 pm

                                                                                   Bring Out Your Inner Indiana Jones

Have you always wanted to be like Indiana Jones? Here is your opportunity to bring out the hidden Archaeologist in you. Sign up to become a Heritage Monitoring Scout for the state of Florida with the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN).

Heritage Monitoring Scouts (HMS) visit historical and archeological sites looking for signs of damage, looting, or climate-related issues. HMS record and photograph local archaeology sites for the state of Florida. Over time, this data base will provide much-needed information on which sites are in danger, and how to preserve and protect them.

FPAN is partnering with the House of Refuge Museum and Southeast Florida Archaeology Society (SEFAS) to offer hands-on training, including artifact identification and site recording skills. The training will be offered Wednesday, February 28th, 2018 from 8:30am-2:30pm at the House of Refuge Museum, 301 SE MacArthur Blvd. on Hutchinson Island in Stuart, FL. Seating is limited, so please RSVP to Sara Ayers-Rigsby at: sayersrigsby@fau.edu/  or call 954-254-9657 for an application and details.
