The Montana Site Stewardship program trains volunteers to protect archaeological and historical sites for the purposes of conservation, study, and interpretation. If you would like to become a Montana Site Steward, please consider attending. If you know of anyone who may be interested in becoming a Site Steward, please pass on this information. At the Dillon training we will spend the first day in the “classroom” at University of Montana Western learning about site stewardship. We have a great lineup of guest speakers including Leo Ariwite from the Shoshone-Bannock Tribe, and many archaeologists including Jason Strahl, Shannon Gilbert, and Ryan Powell. There will also be a flint knapping demonstration. The second day we will spend in the field at two archaeological sites (one being a fascinating rock art site) learning how to recognize archaeological sites and their components including artifacts, rock art, and historic mining structures. It will be a great training opportunity, hope you are able to attend!
