2021 Spring Newsletter

Posted May 5, 2021

While 2020 was filled with unprecedented challenges, the staff and scholars at Crow Canyon Archaeological Center accomplished some amazing feats that furthered our mission.

– Engaged in education efforts that highlighted archaeological preservation ethics and pushed our educators outside their comfort zones

– Incorporated Native American perspectives into Crow Canyon’s work guided by American Indian Outreach Coordinator Becky Hammond, member of the Ute Mountain Ute tribe

– Honored with a planned gift by Legacy Society member Lois Minium that will support Crow Canyon into the future

– Saw 18,000 registrants for our 50 webinars in the Discover Archaeology webinar series

– Acquired a high-level tree-ring measuring stand and trinocular microscope to conduct analyses of the tree-ring samples recovered from our excavations

– Continued our multiyear work at the Haynie site studying the Lakeview community and kept the public engaged through webinars, social media, and regular presentations from the field

– Sent our Cultural Exploration team to Ute Mountain Tribal Park to lend hands, feet, tools, and time to work on its Pool Canyon trail that has been closed for years ago due to a lack of maintenance
