Dual Celebration at the John D. Cooper Archaeological and Paleontological Center
November 9, 2012
The John D. Cooper Archaeological and Paleontological Center celebrated National Archaeology Day and National Fossil Day on October 13, 2012 at Ralph B. Clark Regional Park in Orange County, CA. The event "Prehistoric OC" featured lectures, demonstrations, exhibits, a working laboratory, educational activities and hands-on kids crafts. The Kizh Gabrieleno Band of Mission Indians, the Pacific Coast Archaeology Society and Coast Live Oak School also participated and shared information with the over 1000 attendees.
Volunteers are needed to monitor the translations of the International Archaeology Day webpage.
After two years of great success, National Archaeology Day will change to International Archaeology Day for 2013.
The Friends of the Office of State Archaeology in Connecticut acted as a participating partner in National Archaeology Day by sponsoring an Archaeology Fair.
