In 2013, Jones County Conservation Board and the University of Iowa Office of the State Archeologist, with help from a team of AmeriCorps volunteers, dozens of local students, and an archaeologist conducted an excavation of a cave site at the Eby’s Mill Wildlife Area.

Join archaeologist, Bryan Kendall on April 4th to help label artifacts including many animal bones found during the excavation and cave restoration.  Bryan will discuss what the artifacts tell us about life for the prehistoric peoples who inhabited the cave periodically over the last 3000 years.
