On Saturday, June 13, 2017, BLM employees from the Burns District and the OR/WA State Office participated in the annual Archaeology Roadshow – Harney County event in Hines City Park in Hines, Oregon.
The Archaeology Roadshow, hosted by universities, tribes, government agencies, private companies and avocational organizations, is a popular outreach opportunity where field experts can share knowledge and passion for humanity’s past with the public.
This event – featuring 28 tables of exhibitors – was the first Archaeology Roadshow event ever held outside of the Portland State University campus, and was largely coordinated by Burns District Archaeologist Scott Thomas.
"The Harney County Archaeology Roadshow was an amazing success," said Thomas. "We made some new friends and saw many phenomenal artifacts. I can't wait for next year's second annual archaeology roadshow!"
With Scott Thomas, BLM staff members participating in the event included Carolyn Temple, Chuck Morlan, Tom Wilcox, Tara Thissell, and Greg Shine.
In addition, OR/WA State Office staff Kristen Martine, Dave Johnson, and Greg Shine served over the past year as key members of the core planning committee, tasked with organizing the two events in 2017.
