What we're about

Public Group

Welcome to the meetup page/ calendar for the Grand Junction chapter (https://casgjchapter.wildapricot.org/) of the 80+ year old Colorado Archaeological Society. This site we use mostly for the calendar function. To learn more about our chapter &/or to become a dues-paying member please visit http://www.cas-gj.org .

We are one of 11 local chapters of the Colorado Archaeological Society (http://www.coloradoarchaeology.org/)(CAS).

Our location in western Colorado, just minutes from the Utah state line, puts us in the center of a 13,000-year-old American Indian habitation 'dig' site, rock art and ruins of many ages, history, culture and remnants of the old west, many phases of mining from silver and gold to uranium.

Along with all this to see, study and help preserve, we have access to private company, government and academic archaeologists to give monthly presentations. Among our members, many have the desire to share what they know in the form of frequent field trips.

With a past president of our chapter working as a librarian, it might be easy to guess that we have a Book Club. This is an informal group that meets most months at a downtown bookstore to discuss a book of arcaeological signifigance. We have occasionally been able to have the author join us for the book discussion.

You need to be a dues-paying member of our chapter to participate in field trips. Click this link (https://casgjchapter.wildapricot.org/join)to reach our membership page where you can join online or print a membership form and join that way.

We look forward to seeing you soon at a meeting, book club or a field trip.
