Attend the FPAN Heritage Monitoring workshop at the “State of the Reserve” this Friday, Feb. 3, 2017!
Along Florida’s 8,000 miles of shoreline, nearly 4,000 archaeological sites and over 600 recorded historic cemeteries are at risk from coastal erosion and rising sea levels. The Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) started the Heritage Monitoring Scouts program (HMS Florida) to help track and prepare for these climate change impacts by engaging the public to monitor cultural resources. Data collected from the sites include verifying basic site information, assessing overall conditions, and recording the types of threats each site faces. Join Emily Jane Murray, FPAN Public Archaeology Coordinator, to learn how to become a Scout and learn some techniques for identifying pre-historic pottery, historic ceramics, glass, and more!
