For National Archaeology Day the Heritage Program of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest and the Antiquities Section of Utah State History had four presentations on archaeological adventures from home and abroad.  Approximately twenty members of the public attended to hear the different lectures. Next year the Forest Service and State History Office plan to expand the event by providing other activities such as field visits to local archaeological sites and also hope to gather up more agency and private partners.
