NEXT MEETING: Wednesday, July 17, 2024, 6:00PM: members and non-members are welcome to the GCAS monthly meeting at the Roundup Lodge in San Lorenzo (Mimbres Valley). We start at 6PM with a potluck - bring your own plates & utensils, and a dish for yourself or to share with with what we expect to be a larger than usual number of guests, including the starving students of the Preservation Archaeology Museum Curation and Survey Field School. Let's feed these folks well, people! At about 6:30PM we will have a brief business meeting followed immediately by our featured speaker, Archaeology Southwest's Karen Schollmeyer PhD, who will share updates on her and her field school team's work at the WNMU Museum which includes curating the artifacts comprising the NAN Ranch collection. Come meet the next generation of archaeologists and learn about the latest activity at our own WNMU Museum. In order to offer our members a safe and comfortable experience at our in-person meetings the GCAS follows CDC and New Mexico Department of Health guidelines for indoor gatherings including masking, distancing, and vaccinations. We recommend each attendee take the precautions they feel are appropriate for themselves.

NEXT FIELD TRIP: we defer a July field trip due to conflict with the July 4 holiday weekend. Watch this space for our next field trip scheduled for Sunday, August 4, 2024, destination TBA.

MAREC - With Gratitude to Our Contributors

Online Via Zoom: Our March 17, 2021, Featured Speaker: Chris Euler

Please set aside time on Wednesday, March 17, 2021, at 7:00 PM to meet our Featured Speaker, Chris Euler, South Zone Archaeologist for the USFS in the Gila National Forest. Chris will discuss how LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging, a remote sensing method using a pulsed laser) is applied to archaeological surveys and will describe how he has used it to identify archaeological features during several years of investigations in Ohio and New Mexico.

Chris worked for the Wayne National Forest in Ohio for 13 years before moving to the Gila National Forest in 2019. During his time in Ohio, and now on the Gila, Chris worked with LiDAR technology to assess cultural resource concerns in the Forest. Chris applied and tested several techniques and methods for analyzing the landscape for potential cultural resources, as well as using LiDAR for site definition, project impacts to resources, and various Fire needs related to cultural resources. Please join us for his presentation!
