Reaching out to the community with archaeological information and education
Our Colorado Archaeological Society’s chapter’s Community Outreach/Education program brings awareness of the importance of archaeology, history, and preservation to the Pikes Peak Region’s community through informal educational programs. When possible, we host programs in May to support, promote, and celebrate Colorado’s Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month.
We actively present archaeological and historical presentations to people of all ages in a wide variety of events. Example events include PILLAR Institute for Lifelong Learning programs, Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum events, and much more.
We have developed a special program for school-age children to deepen their understanding of archaeology and Colorado’s early history. In Colorado, the 4th-grade curriculum addresses Colorado history, so our multi-faceted program is geared to this age group. We bring multiple volunteers to your school to host several “stations” with hands-on activities such as rock art, dig box, and ceramics. Through this program, we hope to spark an interest in archaeology and prehistory. We also strive to spark an awareness of the importance of preservation and preventing vandalism.
