The land now known as Fontenelle Forest has a rich archaeological history and with that in mind, Fontenelle Forest will host a series of programs in September for Celebrate Nebraska Archaeology Month.
These programs will explore the unique archaeological past of the forest and offer opportunities for both adults and children.
Celebrate Nebraska Archaeology Month is presented by the Nebraska Association of Professional Archaeologists and is a month-long exploration of Nebraska’s archaeological past. It engages professional archaeologists and the citizens of Nebraska in activities showing the archaeological richness of the state in order to encourage a new generation of archaeologists and give citizens a greater appreciation of archaeological site stewardship.
The following archaeology-related programs will take place at Fontenelle Forest this month:
• Archaeology of the Nebraska Phase Culture of Fontenelle Forest on Sunday, September 7
• Nature Explorers: Discovering the Past on Saturday, September 13
• Archaeology of the Nebraska Phase Culture of Fontenelle Forest on Sunday, September 14
