“KIDS DIG” AT MCLOUGHLIN HOUSE
Kids can learn about archeology by attending “Kids Dig” beginning
at 11 a.m., July 9 and August 13 at the McLoughlin House in Oregon City.
Participating children, ages 8-12, will receive an introduction to
archaeology and participate in a "dig", mapping their artifact finds,
and filling out site forms. As they excavate and screen with the help of
park staff and volunteers, participants will discuss how archaeology
teaches us and why we should preserve these pieces of our past. “Kids
Dig” is limited to 20 children on a first-come, first-served basis.
