Friday, April 27, 2012 - Oxbow Presents Archaeology For Middle School Students May 4Middle school students are invited to take advantage of St. Lucie Schools’ early release day on Friday, May 4 to get a fun and engaging look into the world of archeology.
Students, grades 5 – 8, are encouraged to attend the Oxbow Eco-Center’s first “Young Professional Workshop” from 2 – 4 p.m. as archaeologist Gregg Harding with the Florida Public Archaeology Network helps them “dig” into the past. Participants will learn about flint knapping, try their hand at throwing atal-atals, and studying a peanut butter and jelly archaeological site. Participants will also learn how forensic archaeology tells us about the people that once inhabited Florida.
The cost of this workshop is $5. Space is limited to 15 participants so please register early at 772-785-5833. The Oxbow Eco-Center is a St. Lucie County Environmental Learning Center located at 5400 NE St. James Drive in Port St. Lucie. For the full calendar of Oxbow events visit www.oxboweco.com.
