In collaboration with the Kaibab National Forest, Northern Arizona University is hosting our first field season at Apex, Arizona, a Depression-era logging camp along the Grand Canyon Railway near Tusayan. We will conduct survey, excavations, and remote sensing of the schoolhouse, domestic features, and sites of labor. We will also take field trips to the Grand Canyon and historic and prehistoric sites around the area!

Cost: $2,318.00—Includes 3 credits, transportation to and from Flagstaff and the site, meals, and campsite fees. Scholarships are available (Scholarship amount will depend on the number of applicants, but should range between $500 and $1000).
Not included: housing outside of field days and personal expenses.
