The Archaeology Days event is back!

Oct. 25-26 at the Wanapum Heritage Center

Archaeology Days is back to mix learning with fun at the Wanapum Heritage Center after a two-year hiatus during the COVID pandemic.

Kids have their own day, Oct. 25, for some hands-on, kid-friendly learning about the customs and crafts of native, Columbia Plateau people, as well as area geology, river ecosystems, flora, fauna, hydropower and more. Kids should bring their own lunches and gather 'round the exhibits from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Adults have a day of their own, Oct. 26, which includes a salmon lunch prepared and served by the Wanapum. The roster of speakers is currently being compiled and will be available at the event. Topics will include Native American rights, the cultural heritage of the Columbia Basin and area geology carved by the Ice Age floods. Come for the full day -- 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. -- and enjoy hours of fascinating discussion, crafts demonstrations and more. 

Archaeology Days is co-hosted by Grant PUD and the Wanapum Heritage Center. The event coincides with Washington State Archaeology Month.
