Bureau of Land Management to Celebrate National Archaeology Day Across the U.S.
May 11, 2012
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) joined as a Collaborating Organization for National Archaeology Day and issued an Information Bulletin to all BLM employees encouraging them to showcase their archaeological programs and resources by holding events on National Archaeology Day. The BLM's stated mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. This year, the BLM is celebrating the 200th anniversary of its predecessor agency the General Land Office.
Volunteers are needed to monitor the translations of the International Archaeology Day webpage.
After two years of great success, National Archaeology Day will change to International Archaeology Day for 2013.
The Friends of the Office of State Archaeology in Connecticut acted as a participating partner in National Archaeology Day by sponsoring an Archaeology Fair.
