Iowa Archaeology at Louisa County Summer Rec


Thursday, July 20, 2017 - 9:00am to 12:00pm


Locust Grove Park

The Office of the State Archaeologist is excited to participate in Louisa County Conservation Board's Summer Rec program! Archaeology programs will be conducted on select Thursdays throughout the summer.

Archaeology activities will take place in Morning Sun on Thursday, July 20, during that week's Summer Rec program for children entering grades 3-6.

Summer Rec provides youth with the opportunity to explore local parks, learn about the environment, and enjoy a few hours of outdoor adventures. This summer the theme is Crazy Critters and participants will discover the amazing wildlife that calls Louisa County home. Each day of Summer Rec participants will get the chance to play games, make crafts, enjoy a snack, and take part in lots of other fun activities. 

Summer Rec is free to all residents and takes place from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM each day. Dates are separated according  to the town and the grade the child will be entering in the Fall.


In order to attend Summer Rec, participants must have a signed permission form. Permission forms can be downloaded, filled out, and returned the first day your child attends Summer Rec.
