On June 3rd, Albion participated in a Public Archaeology Day at the Rancho San Andres Castro Adobe, in Watsonville, California. Albion partnered with UCSC, Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks, and California State Parks to provide archaeology-focused exhibits and activities. With over 100 visitors, the event was successful in engaging the public in their local history, and inspiring local youth to pursue their interests in discovery and science.
With the goals of teaching the public about the process of archaeology, and about the history and archaeology of Rancho San Andrés Castro Adobe, located in Watsonville, CA, Albion Environmental, Inc., and students in the UCSC Archaeological Field Methods Course are hosting a public archaeology event on Saturday June 3, from 10am-2pm. Archaeologists will be giving tours of the adobe grounds and our excavations, and have interactive exhibits about archaeological methods and our findings. Please come take part in this interactive day of sharing and learning.
