Members of the community gathered at the USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum on Saturday for a family activity day.
At the event, families were treated to free admission throughout the day as well as activities from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Members of the Carbon County Star Parties also provided telescopes for those in attendance to view the sun and potentially get a view at some sun spots.
To continue Utah Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month, the museum will host a lecture on Wednesday. Jody Patterson, Ph.D. will present “A Tale of Two Canyons: How Ancient Native American Sites Have Entered Into Activist and Extremist Ideologies and Why That’s a Really Bad Thing.” The lecture is free and the public is invited to attend at 7 p.m. at the Prehistoric Museum.
The Prehistoric Museum would like to thank the Manti-La Sal National Forest Service and the Castle Valley Archaeological Society for helping to make these events possible.
