Volunteer opportunity at the Forks and Minor Medicine Wheels locale on the Lower Red Deer River with Drs. Barney Reeves and Margaret Kennedy
June 4- 9th.
Reeves and Kennedy are entering their fifth year studying the impressive stone feature sites located on the lower Red Deer and the Forks of the Red Deer and South Saskatchewan Rivers (SK). Field activities will include survey and possibly some mapping. Volunteers need to be in good physical condition and prepared for any kind of weather. Please be advised that there are rattlesnakes in the area.
We are based in Empress AB at the Forksview Motel, however accommodation is very limited there. There is also a campground both in town and on the north side of town at Peter Fidler Park. Other motels are located at some distance in Burstall and Oyen. Volunteers might want to come a day early to hear three archaeology talks given by the project directors as well as Butch Amundson (Stantec). These talks begin at 10:30 on Saturday June 3 in the Empress Train Station just inside the entrance to Peter Fidler Park.
