I was posting signs today for all we have going on this week and ran out of space!
Amber is out helping the Lighthouse with their summer camps this week. The theme for June 18-22 is Amazing First Americans. The line up for the rest of the summer also looks very promising for young heritage explorers. For more information contact Brenda Swann or check out their website.
National Park Servicce's Network to Freedom. Receptions kick off the three day event but the meat of the meeting are papers presented by scholars from around the world on Thursday and Friday. How is FPAN involved? We're facilitating a workshop Saturday for those teaching about slavery to elementary age students. More specifically, we'll be talking about our partnership with Kingsley Plantation and new Project Archaeology resources available to educators.
It's not too late to register! Check out the conference website for more information on registration.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!!!!
Members of the Tolomato Cemetery Preservation Association are invited to a special evening event: torchlight tour and talk. City Archaeologist Carl Halbirt will be giving a short talk on recent project that led to the discovery of 16th century human remains now laid to rest at the cemetery. Not yet a member? Never too late to join! Membership forms will be available at the gate (from King Street head north on Cordova, cemetery is on your left before you reach Orange Street). They are a fantastic group of dedicated historians, preservationists, archaeologists, and cemeterians. Check out Tolomato Cemetery Times, their blog that features the spirit of TCPA. I'm not just a fan...I'm also a member!
But what's that in the lower right hand side of our board? It's a final plug for Timucuan Technology free teacher training workshop put on by author Kelley Weitzel and FPAN center staff at the GTM-NERR preserve. Spots are still available, check our website to register and check out tomorrow's "What Is It???" Wednesday for more #TimuTech sneak peeks.
For more information on any of these events email firstname.lastname@example.org or drop by the center to pick up a flier!
