Eby's Mill Artifact Labeling Work Day


Friday, January 19, 2018 - 9:00am to 2:00pm


Central Park Nature Center

In 2013 the 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 a restorative excavation of a cave site at the Eby’s Mill Wildlife Area. 

Join OSA archaeologist, Bryan Kendall, on January 19th 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. 

Volunteers should pre-register by calling (319)481-7987 or emailing naturalist@co.jones.ia.us by 4 PM – Thursday, January 18th. Sign up for all day or choose a time slot. 

Lunch will be provided.
