Friends of Pine Hawk Host Junior Archaeologists Walk

For International Archaeology Day 2013, the Friends of Pine Hawk sponsored a Junior Archaeologists Walk to some Native American sites in Acton, MA on October 17. Site preservation specialist Linda McElroy will led the walk to the Indian stone pile clusters, which was enjoyed by 23 youngsters and parents. The Friends of Pine Hawk seeks to increase understanding and awareness of the archaeological and human stories behind the Native American artifacts discovered when the South Acton sewer treatment plant was built. Named for the site and founded in 2002, the group has offered more than 60 programs for children and adults as part of October as State Archaeology Month. Members include private citizens and professionals from the library, the Discovery Museums, and the Acton Schools.
